    What are the possible statuses for an item? The only statuses we can get for items seem to be on the shelf or missing.


    Item status works differently in Alma than in most traditional ILS products. There are base statuses vs. process types.

    Physical items > Base status list --
    * Item in place
    * Item not in place

    Physical items > Process Type list --
    * Acquisition
    * Claimed Returned
    * Hold Shelf
    * Loan
    * Lost
    * Managed by Department
    * Missing
    * Not in Process
    * Resource Sharing Request
    * Technical - Migration
    * Transit
