Do you use student workers to help with inventory?
Tawonna Henderson
30:58
No not yet
Natalie Palermo
32:30
The placement of barcodes slows down the process.
Tawonna Henderson
32:33
we would love your advice
Natalie Palermo
33:20
Our barcodes are on the inside back cover. We would have to open every book.
Janelle Zetty

I think our library used Symphony to do inventory. It sounds like Mobile Circ has different functions? Like the beeping error alerts?
Shanna Clevenger
34:12
symphony workflows beeps as well if you have them turned on,
Janelle Zetty
34:29
At our site, Circulation did the actual inventory and sent the books that needed to be added back to the catalog or any other repairs.
Janelle Zetty

*sent to Cataloging

Does Symphony have alert for Missing or out of order?
Shanna Clevenger
35:58
No there is a report for that
Janelle Zetty
36:13
Good to know
Shanna Clevenger
36:58
It's a daunting task,
Shanna Clevenger
37:27
you can do it by sections
Janelle Zetty
38:10
Will you get student workers again?
Janelle Zetty
38:18
They sped up the process.
Elizabeth Outler

For us it's a similar motivation to what Catherine started with -- that we know our item/title count is not correct, and we know our cataloging and other procedures have been inconsistent over time
Emily Frank (she/her)
38:52
Shanna, it sounds like you all have undertaken an inventory project at Delgado
Shanna Clevenger
39:18
we did a small one to do a lwl
Shanna Clevenger
39:35
we did it two ways one with workflows and then just with barcodes
