In order to reduce the amount of paper that we use in the library, we are making some changes to how we record our shelving numbers. We will no longer be placing shelving slips in each truck, but instead record this data on a central sheet of paper where we can record information for many book trucks. All the book trucks have been given numbers, so filling out the new form will be a snap.
Here's how it works:
When you are sorting a book truck you will simply fill the book truck as you always have in the correct call number order. Then on the left side of the central recording sheet, you will write the book truck number, your name, the start time and date, and the number and type of items.
Then you will put the truck in the shelving room in the same order as we always have been, over to the far left.
When you shelve, you will continue to take the book truck that is the most to the right. If you need to double check times on the oldest truck, you can check the central recording sheet to see what truck number should be taken. When you are done shelving, you will fill out the right side of the central recoding sheet. You will fill in your name, finish time and date. You will want to look closely to make sure that your are filling out the correct line for the book truck number you just completed.
The pink and yellow slips will still be used for Pick Up for now. Those slips can be placed in Mary's box right away after being filled out.
The central recording sheet will be on a clip board on the counter where the shelving slips have been.
If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to a supervisor.
