Q. How do I find the last patron who checked out an item?

Answer

Finding the last patron who borrowed an item

In Alma, the last patron who checked out an item can be found from the item record. This information is retained for researching fines and fees. Patron checkout data older than the most recent checkout will be anonymized. 

To find the most recent patron who has checked out an item, locate the item record. (A recommended search is a physical item search by barcode.) 

Open the item record and select the "History" tab

Use the radio buttons to select "Fulfillment" 

See the checkout details with patron name and primary ID.
