A book on my Reminder List is listed as having 1 copy in the system, but when I go to order it, I get the following message:

Book No Longer Available for Request

Unfortunately, this book is no longer available for requesting.

The problem is, it's still showing that 1 copy in the system, so I can't even add it to my WL.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Do you have an RC?  Maybe the member declined it because it did not meet your RC?  Not sure.

No RCS. Just tried again and the order went through.

Maybe it was pending due to another member's RC.  Meaning someone else requested it and it had an RC and it was waiting for the sender to accept or decline.  Looks like they declined which made it available for you.
