"24 hour reshelving program"

That old question: "I'm looking for this book but I can't find it."

Well, thanks to some innovations from the Circulation Department, we hope to hear that question a lot less.

The name of their new program that attempts to combat not being able to locate a book is tentatively called "24 hour reshelving program." This is how it works:

A book is returned, it is checked-in two times ("double scanning"), and then it is taken directly to the stacks and shelved. This new method cuts out the sorting areas on the second and third floors, so you will no longer have to instruct a patron to look on the sorting shelves or one of the carts by the sorting shelves if they can't find a book.

A "missing" book should always be at 1 of 3 places: at the Circulation Desk, on a cart actively being shelved, or on the shelf.

But, like in the past, if the "missing" book in question is not in one of those three places, tell the patron to put a search on the book at the Circulation Desk.

During the summer this may not work since there are less student workers then; I will keep you posted. This new reshelving program also does not cover other materials such as Government Documents, maps, etc.

Let Kelci know if you have any questions!
