[Koha] Koha - Reference copies on opac-search.pl results list

I was wondering how libraries with open-shelf reference materials are 
handling the "Place a Hold" link in the search results page 
(opac-search.pl).   As of this instant (and we're a "work in progress") 
, we have "Copies available for reference" meaning they are open shelf 
and not on loan (i.e.  reference materials like encyclopedias, etc)  and 
"Copies available for loan"

It's a bit wordy, and we may need to come up with a way of saying which 
reference room location they are in, because we have 3.  You can see 
that if you click on the opac-detail, but it might be nice to have it on 
the search results page?

Anyway, my real question, does anyone else have a "problem" (okay, not a 
problem, but an "issue"?) with materials having only reference copies, 
and then having the hold link?   The "Sorry none of these items can be 
placed on hold"  is okay, but I was thinking about maybe  some 
javascript to hide the Hold link if there are no copies available for loan.

Thanks in advance.
