What do the Item Stauses mean?

 

Explanation of  Statuses

ASK LIBRARIAN

A title may display a status of ASK LIBRARIAN if the library owns the item, but it is not currently available for checkout. You can try searching “All Locations” rather than limiting your search to one library, or ask a librarian if you would like help locating another copy.

IN TRANSIT

Items will show a status of IN TRANSIT when they are going from one library to another, usually to fill a patron’s request, or to return to the library which owns it when a patron has returned it to a different library. Requests can usually still be placed on these items.

IN PROCESSING

An item will display a status of IN PROCESSING when it has recently been acquired by the library, but the processing work required before putting it on the shelf for patron use has not yet been completed. Requests can usually be placed on these items, although they are not yet ready to be checked out.
