Shelving Tips from Rich:
Bookstacks: Please watch for stuff out of place. Correct shelf errors, untidy shelves. Books that are a half-mile from their correct location, throw on your cart & leave on holding shelves with their brothers & sisters.
Overloaded shelves: Make adjustments as necessary so the items you need to add will fit comfortably. If you can’t adjust books to fit – alert a supervisor.
Watch for stowaways: If the spine tag says “oversize”, “VT Coll”, “Ref”, “Periodicals”, “Armstrong”, “Music”, ANYTHING other than just the LC number, don’t shelve it. Watch for reserve items, ILL, NExpress books. If you think you smell a rat, you smell a rat.
The book carts: pre-sequence the stuff you are about to re-shelve. Please organize ONLY the books you expect to shelve yourself immediately, return any you’re unable to complete to holding shelves– do not leave sorted carts for “the next guy”. Likewise, please don’t take the time to sort the holding shelves, they don’t stay sorted for long, trust me; but it would be nice if you could take a second to tidy up holding shelves that have got tumblydown.
Questions about anything else, PLEASE ASK.
