A: Then why isn't it on the proper shelf?

B: It means that someone in this library is holding it right now.

A: So someone else has the book and plans on checking it out?

B: Either that or someone took it out of the shelf and misplaced it.

A: I really need that book.

B: You're going to have to look everywhere for it.

A: Can't you just make an announcement asking whoever has the book to come forward?
