Saturday 10.27

Unfortunately, I was unable to find any of the four search requests today. Also, I was originally scheduled to clean computers, but I have never been trained in on doing that so I moved trucks (there were a lot of them) and finished pick up on 2 after deliveries instead.

Annex Shift Update 10/22/07

We have put interfiling Quartos and Octavos on hold for now.

Currently
-We are moving LC Folios from 40B to 47A. These are moving backwards (From Z-A), and because of that students should try to fit as many shelves per vertical section as possible...especially when sets are being moved.
-There are now "LC Shift" flags for people in the current Folio section that note a call number and Shelf number on it. When students come to these, they should find the items in the noted aisle number and interfile them before moving the rest of the books.
-Space to leave: 14inches per shelf, but all sets should be filled in. Please remind eveyone that they need to leave space when a call number changes (this has not been getting done consistently).

Please have all desk students work on this shift.
We are out of yellow trucks, so we are using a brown one from 1st Floor Circulation.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks!

Only two searches today and I didn't find either of them. There also wasn't much shelving, only one or two trucks on 2nd and 3rd. Very quiet, I was late due to some parking issues.

Saturday 10/20

There were 9 searches today and I was able to retrieve 2 of them. Nothing much else out of the ordinary occurred.

Sunday 10/14/2007

Only one search today and I did not find it. There have not been any trucks to go upstairs, so there is little shelving on each floor. When I was cleaning the computers, no matter how careful I was, the screen cleaner left streaks all over the screen. I just stopped using it because it was leaving the computers dirtier than before I used it. I don't know why this happened. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I did double check to make sure I was using the correct wipes.

Saturday 10/13

I showed Alex how to do searches and deliveries (I've only done afternoon deliveries, so I'm a little rusty on the morning delivery protocol which, if I remember correctly, is slightly different). Between the two of us we found three books out of nine. If Alex does the searches alone he might need some help with the item processing (changing the staus to missing) and sending out e-mails his first few times.

Sunday 10/7/07

Only one search today for an Ames book and I didn't find it. Just a truck (maybe 2) on each floor is left for shelving. Other than that, it went smoothly. I showed Bethany how to get the key for the annex, deliveries, and how to lock up in the event that I am unable to come in on Sunday. She might need to be shown deliveries once more before she is scheduled on it alone, though, so she feels more confident.

10/6 Status

I went an astonishing 3 for 4 on the searches today. Really slow day at the annex for the most part.
