Name

Note

Scheme

Item Element Type

For Item Element Type the following values must always be used:

  • Bibliographic Description
  • Item Description

http://www.niso.org/ncip/v1_0/schemes/
itemelementtype/itemelementtype.scm

 

6.3 Additionally required parameters

As it is defined in the guidelines to the DCB-2 (DCB-2 documentation, page 16), in order to support the widest range of user functionality, while not required by the protocol or the profile, system should send the most complete version of any message or message response including optional data. This is also required by this document. Especially it applies to the following cases:

6.4 Additionally required request parameters

Some of the request data is optional in the DCB-2, but in the combined library the following elements are required:

6.5 Additionally required response parameters

Some of the requested data is optional in the DCB-2, but in the combined library the following elements are required:

Other Agency Address Information elements may also be used additionally (with other values of the Physical Address Type and Agency Address Role Type) because the Agency Address Information element is repeatable.

6.6 Integrated library issues

In order to support special use cases in combined libraries the following events must be handled:

In the DCB-2 application profile, the User Agency manages the transaction and the decision whether the external item should be borrowed or whether aloan should be renewed is to be made by the User Agency. However, as a part of the decision process, the User Agency may verify in the Item Agency whether there are other patrons awaiting this item. It can be realised by sending the Lookup Item message to the Item Agency with Visible Item Id and the Current Requesters Desired flag. Lookup Item Response should contain the list of current requesters (if the item is currently reserved by someone).

Item Shipped message should be sent to all branches of the combined library (all potential Pickup Agencies). For a pickup in location of the Item Agency, when the item becomes available for pickup and is moved to a reservation shelf, the Item Shipped message should not be sent to the combined branches of the Item Agency.

In addition to DCB-2 requirements Item Received should also be sent to agencies combined with the agency (as they were potential pickup locations), so they are also aware that the item has been received.

When the User Agency performs the checkout of the item, the Item Checked Out message should be sent to the Item Agency and to each agency combined with the branch where the pickup was performed (so that each potential Pickup Agency does not await for the item anymore).

When the User Agency performs the cancellation of the reservation requested, the Item Request Cancelled message should be sent to the Item Agency and to each combined branch in the pickup location (so that each potential Pickup Agency does not await for the item anymore).

The agency sends Check Item In to User Agency and afterwards Item Checked In to Item Agency.

Additionally the agency checks what should be done with the item by looking up current requesters in Item Agency. If there are none the item should be put on a local shelf. Otherwise by using Lookup Request for the first request the agency should do the following:

The agency sends Item Received to Dropoff Agency and Item Agency.

The agency sends Check Item In to User Agency and afterwards Item Checked In to Item Agency.

Additionally the agency checks what should be done with the item by looking up current requesters in Item Agency. If there are none the item should be put on a local shelf. Otherwise by using Lookup Request for the first request the agency should do the following:
