HOLLIS CIRCULATION LIAISONS MEETING

March 3, 1998 9:15-10:45 OIS Conference Room

Introductions

Old Business

  1. Patrons w/notes on their patron record. MC has produced a report showing all patron records with notes. The report clearly shows some inappropriate use of the note field, although the problem does not appear to be extensive. The next question: what to do next?
  2. Annual circ reports. MC has found annual circulation statistics reports for: Cabot, Divinity, Kennedy School, and Widener. This implies that the following units have not been receiving similar reports: Design, Fine Arts, Gutman, Hilles, Lamont, Littauer, Law, Countway, Music, Physics, Tozzer, and Wolbach. Not knowing the history behind this, we should discuss whether the existing reports would be useful to produce on an annual basis for other service units.
  3. Other?

New Business

  1. How do other Circulation supervisors coordinate and manage the student/casual desk coverage. What type of backup system is used if a student fails to show up, etc.? (DG)
  2. Phyllis Askey: new Circulation & Access Services Librarian at Law School Library as of 2/17.
