News From Around the Libraries

The Inventory Project Breaks the One Million Item Mark
The Inventory Project is right around the half way point of its' timeline and our scanners have scanned over 1,100,000 items.  The project will be wrapping up "Wilson Gen Dewey" and will be moving on to "Wilson Gen LC" the last week of November.  Since the project started at the end of July,  we have sent over 4,000 items to missing and have reinstated over 800 items.  Please contact Jackie Gulbranson at: jackieg@umn.edu if you would like more information about the project.
