Multiple copies of a book 4 Years ago Karma: 0  
How can we handle rentals when we have multiple copies of the same book?
The plan is to scan books by ISBN with a barcode scanner. So we can't have multiple entries for the same book.
However, we'd like the software to know that there are 5 copies of a specific book so that it could be lent out up to 5 times at once.
This is, I think, a fairly common scenario for most libraries.

And how do I do that?
I don't want 5 different entries in the database for that. I'd like a counter on a book which has multiple copies so that when it's rented out, it is decreased by one.
Having the same book in the book list 5 times is really not what we want at all.
