  • For small donations student searches NEXPRESS. We do not keep earlier editions.
  • Terry reviews if we do not already own: moves to booksale truck or leaves on shelf to be cataloged.

For larger donations: liaisons participate in the review

  • they usually ask us to only add what is not duplicated in NEXPRESS
  • Currently our student searches but we can just give these books to Cataloging; they can booksale the dupes and add the ones we do not own; no need for duplicate searching
  • All added gifts are given a 541 field (setup as a macro) which states donor name and fiscal year. This is for statistical record keeping.
  • Will start to add the 541 field for anonymous donations that are kept (have not been doing so).
  • Michele will start to bring in records for the gifts being added which we do not own, rather than putting a NO RECORD IN CATALOG slip.

DVDS

  • Will start to add the 541 field for dvd donations.
  • If we own the dvd at Media Circ we add donation to Browsing.
  • If we own the dvd at both Media Circ and Browsing we keep the donated duplicate in room 133 in the Replacement DVD cabinet: for when owned videos get lost or damaged.

Electronic bookplating is on the wish list. Cost? Webteam? Writing code? Advancment? How many others would be involved with that project?Terry will consider adding it to the project directory.
