David Roth | Evansdale Library, West Virginia University 15/62 Sections of Lesson 10 This lesson has five (5) total sections, split into 2 parts. The first part contains three sections. Lesson 10b contains three more sections. The sections for sub- lesson 10a are as follows: § 10.1 Assisted Patron Search § 10.2 Filling out a Missing Item Search Form § 10.3 Missing Item Search Ok, let’s begin …

16 Revised TH :48 EST Created WE Lesson 10a. Physical Item Searches / Bringing Learners and Library Skills Together Copyright © by A. David Roth | Evansdale Library, West Virginia University 16/62 Item Searches There are five types of item searches that are done: The first is accompanying a patron to find the book s/he needs The second is a missing item search The third is a search for a mis-shelved item The fourth is a lost item search The fifth is a claims returned search Let’s look at these in turn

17 Revised TH :48 EST Created WE Lesson 10a. Physical Item Searches / Bringing Learners and Library Skills Together Copyright © by A. David Roth | Evansdale Library, West Virginia University 17/62 § 10.1 Assisted Patron Search

18 Revised TH :48 EST Created WE Lesson 10a. Physical Item Searches / Bringing Learners and Library Skills Together Copyright © by A. David Roth | Evansdale Library, West Virginia University 18/62 Assisted Patron Search If a patron comes to the desk and says that s/he cannot find a certain book in the stacks, it is our job to help locate it for them First, ask the patron for the title and author of the item For example, let’s say a patron wants the book Bob Dylan by Anthony Scaduto

19 Revised TH :48 EST Created WE Lesson 10a. Physical Item Searches / Bringing Learners and Library Skills Together Copyright © by A. David Roth | Evansdale Library, West Virginia University 19/62 Open the library homepage at Then select the “MountainLynx Catalog” link

22 Revised TH :48 EST Created WE Lesson 10a. Physical Item Searches / Bringing Learners and Library Skills Together Copyright © by A.

23 Revised TH :48 EST Created WE Lesson 10a. Physical Item Searches / Bringing Learners and Library Skills Together Copyright © by A. David Roth | Evansdale Library, West Virginia University 23/62 Assisted patron search (6/6) We do this because some patrons may not be familiar with the MountainLynx Catalog and may not have checked to see whether the item is charged out or not (If it is charged out to another patron, s/he should complete a Recall of the item or use the E-ZBorrow capability) Also, they may have missed noticing in which library it is located If conditions at the Circulation Desk permit, the supervisor may ask you to accompany the patron into the stacks to locate the item or to venture out alone to find it (more on that in section 10.3) If you cannot find it, then recommend that the patron should fill out a Missing Item Search Request form, which will initiate a formal search for the item
