Weekly University Project Team meetings Weekly Planning/Coordination Team meetings Key Deadlines are clear, and updated promptly Regular electronic communication to building staff about construction events Signage for patrons, temporary paths marked, earplugs! With an improbably short timeline for planning and construction, there was no time for procrastination.
The first and most daunting task was to prepare Periodicals to be moved off site. Collection staff identified candidate titles to be moved off-site to free up required shelf space. Large numbers of bound periodicals were not barcoded, a requirement for retrieval from remote storage Staff from across university library participated in crash project to affix barcodes, update records in ACORN, and ship trucks of books to the Annex. Remaining Periodicals had to be shifted to create contiguous free space for books coming down from 8.
12 Days of Barcoding On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a barcode in an oak tree. On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Two green stickers, And a barcode in an oak tree. On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Three book trucks, Two green stickers, And a barcode in an oak tree. On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a barcode in an oak tree. On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Two green stickers, And a barcode in an oak tree. On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Three book trucks, Two green stickers, And a barcode in an oak tree.
Barcodes applied (est.)--- 45,000 Item Records Created--- 35,500 (est.) Material moved to Annex--- 3,200 linear feet
