Re: Moving ref titles to general stacks Hoyte, Daniel 03 Dec 2009 18:00 UTC
It has been over three years since I did this, but here is how I set up
the disposition procedure at our Law Library.
=On the check-in records of our ILS (III) the disposition of the
previous items was noted, if it was to be changed.
=The operator would process the new item according to the parameters set
in the system.
=The operator would place a slip in the new item, that was color-coded
to alert the shelver that the previous item had some further processing
=The operator would update the previous item in the ILS to reflect its
Discard old->orange slip, delete item record, process
Old to faculty-> yellow slip, delete item record,
process for routing
Old to stacks-> blue slip, change location code, remove
Old to non-stacks location-> blue slip, change location
code, add location sticker
With the exception of the discard, all of the old items would come back
to me to complete the processing. The shelvers would complete the
discard procedure on the old items, without intervention on my part.
