During the library transition beginning in August 2014 the AVAILABLE status in WorldCat will not be accurate for many items. Please take the following steps to ensure the availability of the item(s) 

1. AVAILABLE status is accurate for the following items:

  • Books beginning with call numbers BS and BT
  • Kits, DVD's, CD's
  • Teaching tools,children's literature, manipulatives, puppets, toys, government documents

2. AVAILABLE status for other items is only accurate if the following statement appears beside the call number after clicking on the title in your results list:

    "This item will remain available during construction of the new Tyndale library."

      Items not mentioned in point A. that lack this statement are not available.

This may be confusing so ask library staff for help just to make sure.
