[Koha] Open Ended Due Dates, Permanent Loans, Etc.

Hi, all!

    Is there a way to make an open ended due date? That is, if a person
checks out a book, Koha does not assign a due date, *per se*, rather it
merely marks it checked-out. I guess this be might be considered a
permanent or semi-permanent loan but it would not be a transfer.

    Mind you, if a patron puts a hold on such a book, the patron who
checked out the book would have to surrender it. The book would still be
one of the library's holdings so that the library can avail it to the
patrons and track it for property management reasons.

    (The OPAC would list it only *CHECKED OUT* or *BORROWED*.)

    Mind you, I am trying to avoid a proliferation and plethora of LOCs and

    I know this is a nightmare and it defeats the purpose of a library of
shareable works. It would be rarely used, of course, but I can imagine a
scenario in which it would arise.

    Many thanks, all!
