Several edits have been made to both the Borrowing and Circulation staff wiki pages. The links to the right have been updated to point to the most useful page for each. Please let me know if you can’t find something that used to be readily available. Also, please feel free to update any out-of-date information. I did not update content, only the organization and location of the info.

Next Monday, Nov. 8th, will be the official, fully licensed, accept-no-substitutes start of STATS WEEK.
“What does this mean for me?” you may be asking yourself.
You’ve got some of nerve.
We stopped making you keep stats all the time, so for this one week, please keep track of any question you get asked and tally it on this form. I will try to keep that page up all the time so you can just switch over to it. Supervisors will try to remind you as best we can, but in order for these to be useful statistics, we need to make a strong effort to actually record them. Check out the categories listed and let me know if you have any questions.
Due to not very many people tallying them and no one ever asking for the results, we are going to stop keeping stats on questions we get asked. I hope no one is too broken up about this.
For anyone interested:
Hours: 9-5 (branches 1-5)
Davis Family Gate Count: 2091 (comings and goings)
Davis Family circs: 263
Music circs: 29
Armstrong circs: 2
Davison circs: 5
Three cheers for statistics! O.k., well, at least one cheer. No? Well, here they are anyway… Continue reading
Note from Dan:
Starting today (Friday 3/12) we are celebrating GATE COUNT WEEK! (pause for applause) We are making a concentrated effort to get a full and accurate gate count for one full week, every hour. At each circ desk, there will be a sheet for recording. This should be pretty self-explanatory, but I will explain anyway: If you look at the sheet and the current hour of the current day is blank, put the gate count in it. At Main – look for the “P” before the number – indicates patron, not “A” for alarm count.
Now get out there and count those gates!
A reminder to take the gate count as you arrive for your shift – and record it in the new stats form.
Please also record any incidents of the gate alarm in the new stats sheet.
Please note that we have a new stats system. The link can be found in the upper right corner of the Circ blog and will soon be available on all front desk computers.
Circ desks will be responsible for recording gate counts.
Supervisors – please ensure that gate counts are entered in the new stats system.
Student employees – please take the gate count when you arrive for your shift and record it on the new Zoho stats form at the beginning of every shift.
Please also note that there is a new spot to click on any incidents of the alarm going off.
We are trying a new web-based stats gathering tool called ZoHo Creator.
There is a link to the stats page from the Circ blog – upper right corner. Please record ALL activity so that we can accurately record activity levels at all Circ desks.
