Thanks, Suzanne!

It looks like Simultaneous Use ("always available") titles show 999,999 copies owned, and Cost Per Circ ("limited availability") titles show 500,000 copies owned. Do we want to distinguish between those?

If it's too much of a momentum killer, we can open a separate bug for this, but we'll want to I18N'ize those strings sooner or later.

NOBLE doesn't have any Cost Per Circ items yet, so we don't have the details on exactly how they work. But I would think from the patron's perspective they would also be always available, unless there's a configuration that restricts the number of times they can be checked out that way.

Jason, I figured the strings would be a I18N might be a problem.

The patch just committed for bug 1710512 has a model for how the I18N can be handled.

Here is a branch that adds a distinction between simultaneous use and cost per circ titles as noted by Jeff in comment #2. Simultaneous use titles will display "Always available" while cost per circ titles will display "Limited availability." I'm not sure that language is meaningful to patrons but that is the language Overdrive uses. Input from someone with cost per circ titles appreciated.
