Soprano and a new release of the LDS 17th August 2023

We’re pleased to announce the availability of new functionality with LDS release 2.9.31. This version of the LDS enables the following:

  • Amending the borrower due date for an ILL request on receipt and renew

When receipting or renewing an ILL item, it is now possible to amend the number of days before the supplier due date that the borrower due date is set to.


For receipting, the borrower due date and collect by date will reflect the specified number of days before the supplier due date. When the item is actually issued to the borrower, the loan rules are applied.

The number of days can be edited in the same way for renewals.

When RENEW is clicked, the loan will be renewed to the specified number of days before the new supplier due date. The system does not take account of closed days or days specified as bank holidays when renewing in this way. To force these loan rules to be taken into account, renew the item in Home> Renew.

Your current LDS version number is displayed in the footer of Soprano pages. To obtain the upgrade to LDS 2.9.31 mentioned above, please raise a support case through the customer support portal.
