[Koha] Home branch change in the courses reserve process

Hi Sonia,

I think adding the homebranch could make sense and I can't think of a 
reason not to.

My impression is that often the itemtype is changed as well to allow for 
a different (shorter) loan period. If you are doing that, you could 
change the return policy for the item type to 'Item returns to issuing 
library' which might fix the problem.

Hope this helps,
