And When The Doors Open
The Southside Opening Day Collection is coming along very nicely. We have been tracking the various categories to make sure we meet our goals. The "ODC GOAL" is how many items we hope to have on the shelves when we open the new library. These numbers should allow for plenty of great materials on the shelves, while still allowing us room to grow. The "In Catalog" numbers include the transfers from our closed Bookstop location, gifts that have been added by Technical Services at the library, and items that our vendors have finished processing and are storing until delivery. The "Vendors" column is the number of items that are currently on order and backorder with our vendors. "Left to get" is what we still have to order. The library wants to make sure that we have a good selection of current and newly released titles at the time of the opening.
