  8. 8. In order to determine if a requested item is available at your library, NRE needs to know the availability and status terms or labels that your ILS uses. In the table below, please list all the availability status terms used in your catalog (such as On Loan, On Shelf, Missing) and indicate if items with that status can be requested by other members of your consortium. Additionally, whether an item can be requested from your library may depend on the combination of status AND shelf location, we provide a column for you to indicate when this interdependency exists in your lending policies. Availability Status Shelf Location Available to Consortial Borrowing? (Y/N)
  9. 9. Shelf Location Spreadsheet When the Item Availability Service searches your OPAC and indicates to NRE that an item is available at a certain shelf locatio NRE matches the shelf location to an NRE entity which performs lending functions.
