NB: Oliver does not count weekends, term breaks or any holidays (including in-term) in the ‘Days overdue’ count in the setup fields. This is why, for example, the SCT JMS_1st Reminder Student has ‘Days overdue’ set to 10. Two weeks = 2 x 5 days.

NB: Any changes to these overdue sets should only be made after consultation with any Library staff potentially affected i.e JS or MS IRS and including Kate Flowers.
