In-House Use

Hello everyone! I’m finally putting something on here for the first time in a couple of weeks. This will not happen very often but with inventory and such it has been a little crazy trying to find time to post. Anyway, starting Tuesday, September 2 we will start logging in-house use for all the buildings. Each building has been given a sheet with barcodes on it with different newspapers listed. Use this to scan the different barcodes when someone uses that particular newspaper. Also, someone will need to periodically go through the stacks to collect books that patrons have used and scan them in under in-house use. They will then need to be re-shelved. Signs will be put up asking patrons to place used material on carts set aside for this. It may take some time for patrons to get used to this so try and help them in this matter.

As for how to log in-house, click on circulation, then click on log in-house use. Scan the books then press the log queued records. This will place them under in-house use. That’s pretty much it. It is that simple. This is an important item we are adding to our stats. It will definitely help make our stats better and give us a clearer understanding of what is being used even when it is not checked out. Thanks.
