Thanks to everyone who attended the last ALL-WALS meeting! Melissa has posted all the documents from the meeting. They can be found under WALS-->ALL-WALS. Or, here's the link: http://extranet.winnefox.org/content/all-wals
One thing that's not in the documentation, and was voted to be an official Best Practices procedure: It was decided that the official procedures for dealing with items that arrive at your library damaged but belong to another library should be to:
- Check the item out to the owning library’s XX-DA user. A User search for "Damaged" will get you the library's User ID.
- Write a note (we will eventually create a form) with as much info as possible—esp. a complete name, date, and library.
- Preferably put item in Blue Delivery Bag or large envelope to prevent note from getting lost, or more damage occurring.
I will be ordering more credit card readers no later than April 15th. Let me know if you want one.
I sent out a more detailed email to Directors+.
