Bulk loans transfer script

This script extension for Alma permits transferring loans among patrons, maintaining the same date and time of loans and due dates as much as possible.

Using the script:

python loantransfer.py user_from_id user_to_id

Transfers loans from user_from_id to user_to_id

python loantransfer.py user_id_from user_id_to -d 30

Transfers loans using 30 days prior to due date as return/reloan datetime, to avoid an event error in the case of renewed loans

See this blog post for details.

The script is available on GitHub.
