Mary Blissenbach: September 2011 Archives

Operation Enduring Liberty is off to an excellent start this semester. From September 1 to September 16, 30 items were checked and all 30 were found in the correct location. Congrats to all with the hard work. Treats will be brought in sometime this week as a reward for our two weeks without errors.

Today starts another two week period to go for the next round of treats. Lets keep up the fantastic work. The more items shelved correctly means less errors in the stacks and Get It items are easier to find, patrons can find what they need, and shelf reading is easier to do.

If anyone has any questions about this, please talk to a supervisor.

I know that it can be easy to wear your name tag to class after work, but please remember to bring it back. If you need a new one, please send Mary an email or respond to this post so one can be made. Thank you for those who have already indicated that a new one is needed.

Remember name tags are part of providing good customer service.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota has released the following educational statement to help people understand what happened on Saturday at the football game to Coach Kill. Please take a moment to read it since you never know when an emergency can happen to you or someone you know. I also want to remind everyone about the location of the defibrillator in the building. It is located on the 1st floor by the bathrooms in the red box.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let a supervisor know.

Walter Library website, what was "SCIWeb" has been updated. It still has all the great contact info for the Liaison Librarians, but now it has even more. It includes, maps and history of the building, computers and printing options that are in the building, information on trainings and events and a ton more. Take some time to look it over and leave a comment to let us know what you think of it.

This is a great resource for your when working evenings and weekends.

Can't find your name tag anywhere. You have looked all over and you think that your room mates, neighbors, dog ate it. No problem. Let Mary know and she will get you a new one.

Please send her an email or respond to this blog post if you need one.

Remember, name tags are part of the customer service that we offer in the library to identify library staff and name tags need to be worn at all times. This means you need to have on.

Just a reminder to everyone that random shelf checks are still being done. I hope that we will get to a point where we can have two weeks after two weeks correct and endless rewards to all. Over the summer we have had 3 two week sessions with no errors. That is awesome! After each two week period of no errors however there were a few days of errors and I am trying to figure out why. The errors I find are missed decimals, QA in the QB, item after or before already out of order and not caught, items just flip-flopped on the shelf for the next item. These seem to be simple errors that should be caught if one is going slow and paying attention. Please take your time in shelving to make sure the items are correctly shelved. If you have any questions, please let a supervisor know.
