Shelf Reading

Just a friendly reminder about shelf reading here. In general, we've all been slacking, so please remember to do shelf reading when it's slow at the Reference Desk.

Some pertinent tips...

• Make sure to look for "REF" above the call number. The other day I found 4 books that were supposed to be upstairs in the stacks shelved in Reference! If you find this, drop the books in the return shoot at the Circulation Desk.
• Let the librarian know when you're heading into the Reference stacks and what area you'll be in.
• Tidy up the area you shelf read. Straighten books and secure them with book ends. If an area is particularly messy, check behind the books to make sure nothing has fallen back.
• You only have to shelf read when you're working with a librarian, so no sweat for the first few hours of opening shifts or the last few hours of closing shifts.

Check out this post for more information about shelf reading!

Thanks you guys!



These peeps would appreciate orderly stacks! :)
