Item visibility
- Do your records have holdings (ie: corresponding entries in asset.call_number and asset.copy)? If they don't have holdings, they won't be visible in the OPAC. They will be visibile when searching in the staff client, but greyed out.
- Check that the org units that have the holdings have opac_visible set to true in the postgres actor.org_unit table.
- Also check that the shelving locations have opac_visible set to true

Indexer problems:
- Check that there is stuff in the metabib.title_field_entry and other metabib.* tables. These are the index tables. If they are empty, it's possible something went wrong when you ran direct_ingest.pl

Can you help with this problem?
