16 <para>Bibliographic records and copies can be loaded into the catalogue at different stages of the acquisitions process depending on your preferred
17workflow.</para>
18<para>By default bibliographic records and copies become OPAC visible the moment they are loaded into the catalogue. Libraries that do not wish their on-order
19materials to be visible to their patrons can set up an OPAC invisible default copy location for the system to use.
20See <link linkend="admin-acqadditional">Chapter 42. Acquisitions Module Additional Administrative Settings</link> for instruction on setting up and using an OPAC
21invisible default copy location.</para></abstract>
