If you are looking at someone's shelf and they put it on hold, can you still finish looking at it?????

You can finish looking at the page you're on, but as soon as you cilck a button to go to the next page you will see the hold message.

I also think that if you had requested a book and the person put the shelf on hold before you clicked the confirm button then the order would not go through. It would go to the first person in the FIFO line if there were more copies or you'd get an error if there weren't.

If their account in on vacation hold, then all of the books on their bookshelf will be hidden. 

Are you using the Order More From Member button?  If so, I'm not 100% sure how that would chance since your request should have gone through before the hold.  Though I would expect it would be the same thing.

 

ETA: Cathy and I were apparently both typing at the same time.  :)
