It is now the end of the first week and everything has been going smoothly so far. The statistics for the week show us as having completed 300 books, with around 20 or so put aside for more in-depth cataloging. Both interns have been trained in the use of LibraryWorld and shelving protocol, and are both very efficient catalogers.
We haven’t entirely solved the oversize problem, but we have decided to make numbers our immediate focus and worry about the oversize a little later, when we have more books entered into the catalog. We also hope to get a book cart soon, which will be a boon towards relocating the oversize parts of the collection.
