    Calendar closed dates are not factored into due date

    Question

    Our library is closed over the Christmas break so we add close dates to our circulation calendars for December 25th to January 2nd. When we charge out books and other items that have a 21 day or 28 day due date the system is ignoring the closed dates in the calendars and just calculating 21 days or 28 days after today's date. Why isn't the system acknowledging our closed dates?

    Answer

    Closed dates come into play when the calculated due date falls on one of those closed dates. If there are closed dates in the Circulation calendar between the charge date and the calculated due date, and the calculated due date is an open date in the calendar, then these dates are not factored into the due date calculation.

    However, if the due date falls on a closed date in the Circulation calendar, the "Count Closed Days/Hours/Minutes for Loan" setting is then applied to determine the due date.

    Additional Information

    See System Administration User's Guide, Table 5-14: "Check boxes and fields in the Policies Tab of the Circulation - Policy Definitions Workspace" for more information on the "Count Closed" settings.
