222A Hesburgh Library, 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Present:Joe, Tracey, Trish, Lisa, Andy, Kevin, Kitty, Justin, Aaron, Nastia, Mary

Statistics posted online

(Tabled from previous meeting)

  • Have been posting monthly statistics online.
  • MALCs have not been able to access because of the firewall.
  • Do we need to continue maintaining the website?


  • MALC directors noticed requests from their libraries for materials in Annex.
  • Was this perhaps during the summer when Annex copies were not retrievable?
  • Hesburgh has had a complaint about loan periods for journals. Because of delivery times, a journal that had been requested was already overdue when the patron received it. Will consider extending loan time for bound journals (referred to Cheri and Lou).

Circulation Notices

  • Adapted script from MIT to send email notices from the server, instead of using the Print Daemon.
  • Justin and Tracey have been revising the templates to be more uniform.
  • After Christmas, will implement, so that Print Daemon will only handle printed notices, no email.

Records without Holdings

  • About 28,000 Bib Records w/o holdings/items
    • Large portion (20K) appear to be attempted deletes with LDR field only
  • May be good to focus on records with valid OCLC numbers (in case our symbol is in OCLC)
  • May be microforms
  • Special collections in process records
  • Doc Center records
  • Will run reports for each MALC
