There seems to be some confusion about what
Canreservefromotherbranches is supposed to do:


The simple answer is that you can ignore Canreservefromotherbranches
because with IndependantBranches off it is normal behavior for patrons
to be able to place holds on titles at other libraries. Normally I
would say check over your circulation and fines rules in
Administration. Can holds be placed as expected for items at the
patrons' own library? Does the hold message give you any details?
