Books "On Order" in the Library Catalog:

As items are ordered throughout the year, a record is added to the online catalog.  You may encounter these orders as you search the catalog - online catalog

On Order or In Processing:

When you find an item that says - 1 copy On Order for Main Collection, you know that  the book is not in the library, but has been ordered from a book vendor.  When an item says, 1 copy being processed for BA Campus, you know that we have received the item and are getting it ready for the shelves.  You may ask at Circulation for these "In Processing" items and, if possible, it will be made ready for you.

Example from the online catalog:

In Processing example

NSU Faculty, please see your Resource Coordinator for more information about orders you have submitted.


Once the book is cataloged and labeled for the shelf, the on order or in processing  information is removed from the catalog and replaced by a status which says, "Recently Added".
