We have created an additional authorized value under the "Damaged"
category, "Sent for repair," which lets us keep track of the
difference between damaged items which are at their branch for repair
or which have been sent to the main branch.

Using the "Damaged" category means those items can still be placed on
hold, which causes a problem if you're using the default holds queue
report. An alternative would be to use an authorized value in the "Not
for loan" category.
