Question: How can staff find on orders in Workflows? Specifically music CDs, television series and DVDs. Have none been added in the last month or so or is there another way to see a list now?
Answer by Joni Klemencic, Technology Services: As has been blogged, we've recently implemented a new process for ordering which eliminates the need for MM to create a "dummy" copy for the title just ordered. One good and bad consequence of that change is that on-order copies are no longer being created. This is unfortunate for staff who used to search Workflows with a location or item type of on-order. As has been discovered, this search now yields 0 results. More unfortunate, at this time, there's no obvious way to search Workflows for on-order titles.
As for e-Library, prior to this change we generated lists of On-Order titles under Special Lists. This function has been temporarily disabled, but will be turned on again once it is aligned with the new bibliographic data.
Materials Management and Technology Services are actively working to address the impacts of this recent change.
