[IUG] Delaying "Available" status
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
As our Technical Services section is in a different building than our
library, we also needed a way to indicate the transitional status of
books processed but not yet shelved. Materials come to the Preservation
Unit with a " p In Process" status for processing and labeling . When
they are barcoded, labeled, and ready to go, we change the status to "k
Pre-Shelving." This in transit-sort of message is useful to our staff as
well, when trying to locate a particular item.
When the materials arrive in Circulation, the status is to be changed to
"Available" as our library-employee students check in the books, DVDs,
etc. The system works quite well most of the time, barring someone
forgetting to change the status.
