what does "Available Hold Shelf" mean?

I looked on the hold shelf and asked at the reference desk but with no resolution. I requested The Whale by Philip Hoare, a new book. I was told by reference to look over with the new books, but it was not there. I'm confused! My account says "Available Hold Shelf", and that sounds like the book's ready for pick up! It was not on the Hold Shelf. Thanks for your help.

This book is on the hold shelf, but for another patron. If it says Ready for Pickup on your record, then it's here for you to check out. You are still on hold for it, and the system won't permit renewals on an item that has holds. Sorry for the confusion.

Does this still hold true? I have the same situation, but thought maybe 3yrs later the process might have been improved. Thanks
