Alexander Collection Management staff have recently been able to resume work on the 2A shift. We have completed up to LC call number BD and only the books in A through BC remain. Once the shift is completed we will create space management databases for both the Government Documents collections and the 3rd floor stacks and other collections in the north wing. After the databases are created we are planning a shift of the 3rd floor collections to distribute space.

Our returning students have taken over responsibility for pulling RDS books, which has freed up Collection Management staff to work on our other projects. We also have returning Collection Management student workers to help with several searching projects. Recently we have been validating holdings for an SMLR project and working on the 7-1-14 to 7-1-15 cumulative missing book list.

Irina and Rob selected the Adopt-a-Shelf sections for the fall semester. This year we will have a new approach to assigning shelves. Rather than target small problem areas we are giving students several consecutive ranges and are trying to cover two floors of the Stacks collection. Students in previous semesters have been able to easily finish the smaller areas we gave them. Irina has redesigned the Adopt-a-Shelf forms and assignment pages for the coming semester.
