Question: 

What do these catalog status codes mean?

Answer: 

  • On order – an item has been ordered but has not yet arrived
  • Being processed – an item has arrived from the vendor, but is not yet available for checkout  
  • In process – an item has been cataloged, but is getting “processed” (barcode, security strip, label)  
  • On search – an item is not where it is supposed to be, but we are looking for it  
  • Lost – we have looked for an item long enough to know it should likely be replaced  
  • In transit – an item is being moved from one location to another
