To provide a means of accounting for the library’s inventory
Library services staff shall conduct a regular inventory of educational materials at all college library locations, using the library management system’s inventory module.
- Preparing for Inventory
To prepare for inventory, the library staff will complete a shelf reading of the physical items and check for uniformity in the online records.
- Scanning Items
After the online record has been identified as correct, items are scanned into the inventory module either as a batch or individually.
- Reconciling Discrepancies
After scanning items, reports are generated and discrepancies are identified. Library staff will reconcile discrepancies and process as needed.
