Allow for more than one LCN and display report on these
Can we add two LCN numbers in a record and they both display holdings in the expanded list view. This would mainly be when we have two records one for print and one for e . We usually bookmark one record and either add the print LCN to show print holdings or e LCN to show electronic. We would prefer just to allow both LCN's in the one record. When reports are run, all the LCN's would then be identified, not just the print LCN We need to be able to identify by the list item view if we have print and e so two LCNs in the report would help do this.

This would be really useful for us as we have many instances where the hardback and paperback are catalogued separately on our LMS, and we have to choose one record over the other, or add two entries into the reading list. The option to add several LCNs, rather than just two, would allow us to give equal importance to different editions of a book, in those cases where the academic says that older editions are also suitable for a module.

Not sure if this helps or not but at Essex we currently add in both LCNs (print and e) to a bookmark. We start with a print bookmark as the base and then add in the ebook URL and the LCN. Talis "ignores" the second LCN which is fine because the digital availability still shows through the weblink and we just want the LCN in there for collection management purposes. You just have to have the print bookmark as the base to ensure the print availability works.
