patriotic book cartoon.jpgIn order to help attain our shelving accuracy goal of 98%, random shelving checks will be done weekly. To encourage accurate shelving, treats or rewards will be offered after 2-weeks without shelving errors. Our goal is that this will help you see your purpose when shelving and shelf reading and how important it is to shelve accurately.

Please join us in Operation Enduring Liberty to meet the shelving accuracy goal. Remember even one book out of order is a missing book. Together let's try to meet the shelving accuracy goal!

Walter Periodicals.jpgWork is underway on the Walter periodical records in Aleph in order to change the loan period from 1-day to 1-week. This change will make periodicals eligible for request through the Get It service.

The records work is not done in title or call number order, but by system number. Please be aware that for the next week you may check-out a journal and it will be due in 1-day or it may be due in 1-week. Once all the records have been changed, bound periodicals will circulate for 1-week.

Please see a supervisor if there are questions.

The cardboard boxes do not protect the books as much as the plastic mail bins - especially if it is raining or snowing. And they can be difficult to handle.

Due to an illness we are looking for someone to work tonight - Tuesday May 10 from 6pm-12mid. Please let us know if you are able to cover this shift. Thanks!

Then call Bernadette Corley-Troge (Libraries Facilities Operation Management).
