Heidi and anyone else,

I am interested in your experience and thoughts for increasing
turnaround.  Our staff is small and the acquisition clerk does
everything from open the mail, and online check in to barcoding and
sending to stacks.  Please feel free to contact me offline if you
prefer.

Thanks again.

Hi Amy:

Any specific tasks/parts of check in?  We had to set performance
standards when the university brought in Pay for Performance for the
unionized library staff a couple of years ago.  We no longer have the
program but still maintain the standards.  We also are going to be
looking carefully at turn around time, etc. for all acquisitions tasks,
too.  You can let me know if you want my 2 cents.  Thanks! Heidi
