A book I want is "being cataloged," according to the database. What does "being cataloged" mean and when will the book be available?

Being catalogued means it is getting ready to hit the shelves.  Our books come unprocessed so we have to put stickers on them, etc., as well as getting the records set in the catalog.

The actual processing time varies depending on the item. The fastest way to insure you will get the book is to place yourself on HOLD for it.  If you have a NILES library card, a NILES hold will speed up the processing time since books with holds are priorities.  

If you want us to place the hold for you, just call 847-663-1234 and you will be transfered to the appropriate department.  Have your library card # ready. 

Thank you,

Adult Services Librarian
