Help with Shortcuts

If you are checking in items and find a disc or tape missing from its case, you will need to find out the current borrower or maybe the previous borrower if it is claimed the case was checked out in that condition. Go to F4 and use the arrows to key down to Item Barcode (item out to borrower). Scan the item’s barcode and the screen will show who has it on loan. Once past the blocks, Alt + A shows all items checked out on that card. Use the Tab key then arrow keys to select the appropriate title. Alt + E (edit the item) will show the previous borrower. This is also where you can add a check in note (if an item goes out but needs a note such as Send to repairs on return) or to extend a loan to eg 4 weeks when the borrower is going away.

Good News about ILLs from the State Library

Posted on July 10, 2009. Filed under: Reference | Tags: |

The Loans Policy in regard to lending to NSW Public Libraries has been revised to provide greater clarity over what can be loaned and the conditions of use by NSW Public Library clients.

NSW public libraries may borrow items published after 1960 from the State Reference Library with the exception of items noted in the revised policy.

The policy also states that NSW public libraries may allow their members to take loaned items home.

For further details see:

Thanks,

The 36-hour day by Nancy Mace – Katoomba

Posted on June 11, 2009. Filed under: Shortcuts | Tags: |

I promised to put this on the blog after the last casual staff meeting……..

The 36-hour day by Nancy Mace call no. 649.8/MACE is a book about caring for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia and should therefore be shelved in the general ANF section at Katoomba Library – not in the children’s section. I know, the call number makes you think it belongs there but it really doesn’t!!

Thanks,

Sarah

Over the past few weeks we have had a noticeable increase in the number of human errors being made, particularly in the 3 full time branches.

In order to reverse this trend all staff should please pay particular attention to the following:

Check Ins & Check Outs

Staff must watch the screen closely when checking items in and out. Do not solely rely on the ‘beep’ sound. Make sure that every item you check in and check out appears on the screen.

If a message appears which you do not understand please ask your supervisor about it. If you are working at a single person Branch please call a supervisor at another branch to clarify what the message means.

Shelving

Adult Non-Fiction shelving takes precedence at the 3 full time Branches. This means that unless directed otherwise by supervisors staff at Katoomba, Springwood and Blaxland Branches must shelve Adult Non-Fiction first.

When shelving Adult Fiction please remember to check the spine genre sticker of all items to determine what genre room each item belongs to. If you are unsure please check with another staff member.

Thanks, Sarah
