    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Primo

    Question

    Please sum up exactly in what situations (combinations of factors) the following two Calculated Availability Status Codes are used for:

    default.delivery.code.unavailable_in_library
    default.delivery.code.unavailable_in_institution

    Out of the box value is: '' Checked out from {1}''

    Answer

    See: Primo Back Office Guide, In chapter: Getting Started : Primo Concepts, Components, and Relationships : Delivery Functionality and Configuration : Availability Status
    Unavailable in library status:
    If LIBRARY_AVAILBILITY is set to Y (system default) on the General Configuration (Delivery) page,
    and the search scope is library-specific,
    display this status if a physical item is not available in the specific library.

    Unavailable in institution:
    If INSTITUTION_AVAILBILITY is set to Y (system default) on the General Configuration (Delivery) page,
    and the search scope is institution-specific,
    display this status if a physical item is not available in the specific institution.


    Example:
    If an environment has both LIBRARY_AVAILBILITY is set to Y and INSTITUTION_AVAILBILITY is set to Y, check the specific view.
    If the view has an institution specific scope - the relevant code that will be used is: unavailable_in_institution.
    It will be used only if RTA will retrieve from the institution that the item is not available (based on the ILS configuration).
