What does in transit mean?

I see this when I look up a book in the catalogue.

This will appear when a book that belongs in one library is returned to a different library.

It can take a while for the book be transported by staff to the library which officially owns the book. During this time period, the book is listed as 'in transit'.   It is not possible to place a hold on the book during this time.

We ask all our users to return books to where they were taken out.

Exception: books from UTSC and UTM can be returned to Robarts, Gerstein, or other St. George campus locations, and vice versa.
