Stock Check & Stock Move

25/03/2010

This has been a busy week!

The library staff have been doing a stock check. Readers have complained about books that say they are in place in SOLO/OLIS but aren’t actually on the shelves. Whilst some of these are probably on people’s desks, a stock check enables us to work out which books really are missing. So if you’ve seen people wandering around the OIL with little beepy machines, that’s why!
We’ve managed to stock check the Minor (600s & 700s), South Asian (500s) and Islamic Religion (B) sections. Hopefully we’ll do the rest of the library in a future holiday.

Meanwhile, the Bodleian Turkish and Persian books have been being moved out of our basement storage area to the Central Bodleian’s storage. This is to clear space for the up-coming closure of the New Bodleian- we’re due to get lots of books from the Reading Room and from the Indian Institute. Our previously locked stacks will then become open access, allowing people to browse our new material. At least, that’s the current plan. Expect more news as and when we get it…

Ret-conning History

15/03/2010

Our Islamic History section is now fully catalogued onto OLIS and SOLO (except the vernacular items), and James is steaming on into the Language & Literature sections. Like Islamic Religion, this was a quick section as our marvellous front desk staff had already done most of the work!

Out of almost 5,000 items, only 60 needed to be added to pre-existing records from other libraries and 40 needed entirely new records. 150 are still not finished as they’re in the vernacular.

Vacation!

12/03/2010

So, once again we’re getting to the end of term. Tomorrow will be the last Saturday opening (10 am to 1 pm) until next term, and starting on Monday we’re open from 9:15 am to 5 pm.

Books are currently being lent until the 27th April, Tuesday 1st Week.

We hope everyone’s vacations go well, and that everyone who’s desperately writing up dissertations for 9th or 10th week manages it…
