There is a new book I want to read. The Library Catalog says it is "On Order." When will it be available??
The best way to track a book "On Order" is to check the Library Catalog record occasionally. New books are sent in large shipments by our vendors so there is sometimes a bit of a wait for the Library to receive books on order.
As quickly as a new book arrives in the Library the "On-Order" message will change to "In-Process."
When the message changes to "In Process" it is possible to place a Hold on the book.
Processing could take a period of several weeks.
After processing is complete, those persons who have placed holds will be notified the book is available (in order, according to the date of their hold).
