When you search the Libraries' Catalog, individual records have a field called "Status."
- If a book's status is "AVAILABLE" it should be on our shelves ready to be located and checked out. If you can't find the item on our shelves, stop by the library's Circulation Desk for where else to look.
- If the book's status is "LIB USE ONLY" you have to use the items wherever they are located. The most common books are Reference or Special Collections.
- If the book's status is "DUE" followed by a date it is checked out. You can place a hold on it so you can get it when it returns. A faster way to get the item for UW students, faculty or staff is to borrow it through Prospector or Request It.
- If the status is "IN PROCESS" that indicates the book is being processed and cataloged but is not yet available to be checked out. A "hold" may be placed on this item.
- If the status is "AT BINDERY" it means that the book is being repaired and is not available.
- If the status is "LOST" it means that the book cannot be located and a search is underway or has been completed. The book may or may not be replaced.
- If the status is "LOST & PAID" that means the book was lost and paid for by the patron. It does not indicate that the item has been replaced.
