I have either forgotten or they have changed the way to check how many copies of a book are in the system.  Can anyone tell me how to it?  Thanks.

You can add the book to your Reminder List to see the number of copies in the system.

This might change when they put out the new combined WL/RL. But for now it still works.

Thanks.   It was right in front of me and I just didn't see it!  I remembered hovering the mouse over a question mark and that was what I was looking for.  I guess I gotta learn to read!  lol

But if you put a book on your reminder list in order to check how many copies are in the system and the book is already on your wish list, the book will be removed from your wish list and you will have to start all over again. I wanted to see how many copies were in the system for a couple of books I have been waiting for and now instead of being in the sixties, I am in the three hundreds.

If the book is on your wish list, then there are 0 copies in the system. If you are looking at the book details, and do not see an Order This Book button, then there are also 0 copies in the system (or else it's on your own shelf).

Right now if it's on WL there are NO copies in the system.  Soon they will be combining the WL and RL.  It will supposedly put your RL books on hold and sort them by those unvailable and those currently in the system.  But right now you cannot put a book on your WL if it's availabe in the system.

Too bad we can't see how many TBR copies (currently entered) there are of books on a wishlist!
