New Book Trucks!

Bio-med must have really nice book trucks if they're willing to give up two that don't even squeak! How come we have so many that squeak? Anyway, I claimed the two non-squeaking-Bio-Med cast offs and they have happily joined our compliment of mostly-squeaky book trucks. We sent the little red book truck with the divided top to its eternal reward (which I think is located in the caverns of Andersen) and now we get to decide which other book truck is deserving of retirement. So far the thought is that either the little yellow or the little black one should join its banished friend. Any thoughts? What's up with the wooden cart that no one ever uses? Can we get rid of it?

Also, it turns out that people like our bright pink signs! At least the night crew does. Sally and I will work at making updated pink signs with the new Minitex logo on them so that our new carts feel welcomed and included.

Tip-ins

When I took a book up to Karl this evening to have him tip-in a loose page, he suggested that he could set us up with some glue and a paintbrush and we could do tip-ins ourselves. Anyone interested?

Molasses was being obnoxiously screechy yesterday and today. Adam is going to call the repair guy and see if something can be done to tone Molasses down. Here's hoping!

Business Week Weirdness

In the past couple of weeks, Sally and I have seen a couple of odd Business Week Requests. When we look them up in ASP the page number has a letter after it. The print version doesn't have any page numbers with letters after them. But the microfilm version does! Go figure.

White Aleph Requests

I've learned a couple things about White Aleph Requests in the past week.

  1. On book requests where a book/barcode has already been picked, there's no way to change it to a different book. If the wrong book was picked or we have a different edition Kevin sends the library a note and has them resubmit the request as an Green Aleph request.
  2. On serial requests where the list of volumes owned prints out at the bottom of the page, they don't verify those any further to make sure we actually own the volume requested.
Perhaps you all already knew this, but I found it enlightening.

The Vision

Since we don't all see each other every day, this blog will provide us a space where we can share information.

Topics that could be posted include, but are not limited to:

  • Technical Difficulties: Computer, Printer, Copier, Scanner, Microfilm Reader Issues
  • News from around the Libraries: Information from Preservation, Little Libraries, Circulation, DTU, etc.
  • Things to Make our Lives Easier: Useful Websites, Indexes, Online Resources, etc.

The Possibilities are Endless!
