In-Transit Reports

The last in-transit report was produced in September. The group has thought of ways to ameliorate the situation:

The issue will be brought up again in next month's meeting.

Update of Government Documents (E. Yourstone)

Water damaged items at LSM have been returned to the shelves.

New shelves will be put in for shifting of state materials (LSM).

It was suggested that the LSM Government Publications be color coordinated (maps, range finders, etc.) according to the Gov. Publications collection at Alexander. This will standardize these collections and aid patrons using the materials at both locations.

The LSM Gov Publications collection is rapidly growing. Therefore, more people will eventually need to be trained to work and shelve in Gov. Publications. Also, the Gov. Publications training will be put on Powerpoint to facilitate the training process.

The statistics taken for Gov. Publications at Alex and LSM will be as follows: books, reference, microforms, shelving. M. Brodman will add Gov Publication microform stats to Alex's collection management stats.
