Bug Description

With the OverDrive API availability on in the catalog, titles with unlimited availability are displayed as Status: 999991 of 999999 copies available. Text should read "Always Available" or something users can understand.

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.
