Cataloguing Arabic Literature

28/05/2010

Our retro-conversion project is steaming ahead, getting all the old books onto OLIS so that people don’t have to use the card catalogue! James has now finished the Minor Islamic (Art, Music etc) JC-N and the Arabic Language & Literature PJ sections. There were just less than 4000 books, and almost 3000 were already on OLIS. 600 of the rest were in Oxford at other locations, 200 were unique to our library so needed to be catalogued from scratch and 100 were in Arabic and James couldn’t find a record for them so they need to wait for our Arabic specialist to catalogue.

Now there’s just Persian, Turkish and Hebrew to go (plus a few loose ends)!

Stock Checking

21/05/2010

You may have noticed librarians scurrying around the library this week with big printed lists of books. That’s because we’ve had the results in from the stock check we carried out over Easter. We checked the 500s, 600s, 700s and Bs, and this week we got a very scary list saying that almost 600 books were missing! Luckily we’ve gone around and found most of them- we’re managed to cut the list down to under 100 missing. Don’t be surprised if you see us searching for these last 100 over the next few weeks!
