Monday 15th June

  • Library Management Platform project board meeting including an update on the SCURL groups, internal operational groups and timeline for project.
  • Weekly meeting with line manager – staffing and plans / developments for summer
  • Collection Development meeting including update on stock relegation (books) and plans for removal of some of the journal stock to make more study space for students.
    Collection development is officially the responsibility of the resources team however in practice a lot of the work, especially maintenance and relegation, is undertaken by the Customer Services team.  This is mainly because they have the skills and knowledge of where the stock, books and journals, are located and their usage by students.  The demand for items is monitored by Customer Services staff.  We have a rolling programme of weeding and have just finished one list and are now starting on the quick reference and IPE books.
