Information Sharing



Chang plans to shift the entire stacks collection at the start of the spring semester. We have plenty of space in our compact shelving so we will just be pushing the collection back by 1 row. Our last big stacks shift happened in the summer of 2013.



Kilmer has been busy shelving back logged returning books. The duplicate weeding project is continuing and with more focus during the winter break. Also our hard-copy subscription of The New York Times and Wall Street Journal have been cancelled as of Dec. 2014.



Concentrating on minor shifting in H section of stacks collection, and seeing that stacks are all in order for the spring semester.
