Collection Services Policy and Procedure Manual: Volume Count information

Inventory

In 1980-1981 fiscal year we did a physical count of all volumes in the library.  We did not have an accurate title count.  To get our title count we counted how many titles where in 1" of a shelf-list drawer.  Then we measured in inches the entire shelflist to get our estimated title count.

Inventory of 2011-12

In 2011 the circulation dept. began another physical inventory of titles and volumes.   They used a scanner to scan the bar code in each volume.  The project was finally completed in fall 2012.  Over 14,000 volumes were found missing.
