When an item is routed from a library location to another, it is placed automatically in “Transit” status. When the item arrives at its destination, it should be checked in. If the item is returned and does not have any holds on it, it will switch to “Reshelving” status. After one day (24 hours), it will automatically switch to “Available” status. If the item is on hold for someone, the system will print a hold slip.
If the item arrives at its destination but is not checked in properly, it will remain in Transit status even though it might be reshelved. To anyone viewing the catalog, it will look like the item is not available and it will delay holds on the title.
It is recommended that each library check their transit lists on a regular basis (monthly or weekly) to catch any items that have been routed to their location, but not checked in.
