Set closed dates using the Closed Dates Editor

These dates are in addition to your regular weekly closed days (see the section called “Library Hours of Operation”). Both regular closed days and those entered in the Closed Dates Editor affect due dates and fines:

Closed dates do not affect the processing delays for Action/Triggers. For example, if your library has a trigger event that marks items as lost after 30 days, that 30 day period will include both open and closed dates.

Adding a closure

  1. Select Administration > Local Administration.
  2. Select Closed Dates Editor.
  3. Select type of closure: typically Single Day or Multiple Day.
  4. Click the Calendar gadget to select the All Day date or starting and ending dates.
  5. Enter a Reason for closure (optional).
  6. Click Apply to all of my libraries if your organizational unit has children units that will also be closed.
  7. Click Save.
