If an item in the catalog is marked as Not Checked Out, it has been cataloged, processed and received by its home campus. It should be available on the shelf and can be requested. However, don’t forget that not all items can be taken out of the library. If the item’s location says something about Reference, Periodicals or Reserves, you can only use it inside the library and you cannot request that it be sent to a different campus.
If an item in the catalog is marked as Checked Out, someone has already checked out this item. It should not be on the shelf. You can't put a request on a book that is checked out, but you can recall it.
