We're formerly a consortia now working as multi-branch library, but one thing we're doing differently is not displaying a column for every copy status. Instead, we output a single copy status column, with the one or more copy status values (which is usually 2 or less) for that bib record in a single cell. We're very tight on available 'real estate' so this format works better for us, especially since we haven't yet fully removed some of the redundancy in our copy statuses.

As a Sitka library, I'm curious what other consortia are doing in regard
to displaying status in the pac. I am referring to the copy information
that is displayed such as: available, checked out, in process, in
transit, reshelving, missing, on holds shelf, on order, mending etc.
Currently, we display 9 of the 19 available.
I'm interested in hearing what other Evergreen consortia are doing. For
example, did all of your libraries agree to a specific list to be
displayed? Has your consortia or IT done something else that is really
innovative? We have both public and academic libraries in our
consortia, small libraries and multi-site so everyone has slightly
different needs and uses of the available status terms.
Thank you very much for your sharing your ideas,
