|Permanent Loan Copy Status||Copy Status to set the Copy to when issuing an item on permanent loan. It is set to On Permanent Loan (PLN) by default, but it can be set to another permanent loan Copy Status or to nothing if preferred. If it is blank, OLIB sets the copy status to PLN.|
|Default Address Type||The optional default Address Type to be used in generating automatic overdues and recalls. Note that overdues can still be generated without user addresses.|
|Default Payment/Waive Type||The default of Cash appears when processing a payment in the User Charges screen. This default can be changed to a different value such as E-card.|
|Pay Accruing Fines?||You can configure OLIB to determine if fines that are still accruing should be payable or not at the circulation desk when accessing the User Charging screen. (Only payment of terminated fines may be the preference for some organisations). This configuration can be done at system level or Location level.|
