If there are several copies of the same book in the system and a member orders that title, which copy gets requested? The one listed first, that is for the longest time? The newest listing? Or is it random?

That is FIFO, first in, first out.  So the copy that has been posted longest is the one requested. 

There are exceptions to this.  Such as the order more from a member when you are ordering one book.  Or ordering directly from a person's bookshelf, such as during a deal.

FIFO (First In, First Out).  Unless you request a specific copy directly from another members bookshelf.
