[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Issue with Closed Stacks and reference books for Reading Room and not lending

Hello all,


At the Peace Palace Library we have Closed Stacks for all our works
which are either in-house reference material or can be borrowed.


Therefore: patrons or staff place a Hold, we need the Pull List for
Holds Requests mechanism for accessing our Closed Stacks and we need a
Circulation Policy rule that tells Evergreen that some works on the
Holds Shelf can actually be borrowed and others can not and are Reading
Rooms only.


Here is the issue: we can't figure out how to achieve this scenario (out
of the box Evergreen we did not tinker yet with Circulation
Policies or Circ Modifiers but forced  behaviour in the copy editor:



A copy item that has Circulate "No"  (for in-house only)  is Holdable
but does *not* appear on the Pull List. Dead end.

So: we tried Circulate "Yes" and then "Reference" is "Yes" - but to our
surprise, such an item can be checked out. Oops.


Anybody an idea how to tackle this ?


We realise Evergreen has its roots in an Open Stacks environment but
even then patrons might inadvertently try to check out an item marked
"Reference" ? Really hope there is a solution combinable with a Closed
Stacks situation.


Kind regards,


Bas Otting
