When a Patron is selected, full details of all current Loans and Reservations are displayed, with any Overdues highlighted and specially entered Librarian messages displayed.
When a Patron is selected, their photo is prominently displayed. This is useful for confirmation and security checks – especially for new or temporary staff.
Each of a Patron’s loans can have its Due Date updated, Reloaned, Returned or marked as Missing.
Loans, Overdues and any Reservations for the currently selected Patron can be printed or emailed directly from the module.
Multiple levels of access, allowing non-Librarians to be allowed to perform specific tasks without full access to the system.

Several loan period options are available:
