5.1. Item was visible, but now I can't find it. Help!

In the event an item formerly visible in an OPAC seems to magically disappear, a simple question needs to be asked.



If NO, then consult with your Cataloger on staff.

If YES, then consider the following:

Every item, depending on its point in the Status cycle has an ability to appear or not to appear via config.copy_status in the database.

First, determine your current item's status through asset.copy in the column status. The integer provided corresponds with config.copy_status.id.

The row provided by this id with have four columns. The last, opac_visible, will determine if your item can be viewed in the OPAC or not.

Once this status changes, say from Reservation Shelf to Available, then your item will once again appear in the OPAC.
