Well, with two people out sick we had a difficult time today. At Charles suggestion, Cassandra and I continued pickup (after I finished book return) until our breaks. We were not quite finished, but the remaining items were brought down to book return for shelving.
Although we were both picking up I did not see Cassandra until after our breaks. This is because she did not start in the basement. To be honest I'm not really sure where she started, but when I asked her later if she knew that we were supposed to start in the basement she did not. In fact, she didn't even know that we shelved anything in the basement. As such I think it might be a good idea to give Cassandra a refresher in Periodicals and perhaps pickup as well. Mainly becuase this is the second time in two weeks that I have picked up the basement by myself; it might be a good idea to just let everyone know that pickup starts in the basement and only goes up a floor when the current floor is complete.
Otherwise, with no hope of finishing shelving and a large quantity of Get Its. After our breaks, we shifted focus from pickup to get its, and I am hoping that we will have all but the subbasement libraries taken care of before we leave.
See you Teusday!
