Kresge Library's Access Department (Circulation) is
conducting an inventory of library materials. A part of the inventory is the
barcoding of the Reference collection. The following procedure is meant to
assist staff as they barcode books within the Reference
(Remember that a laptop battery only lasts approximately 2 hours)
(Using one's personal logon and password)
(Using e-mail address and password)
(Using one's Voyager logon and password)
***NOTE***Since every person
barcoding is using his/her own logon and password each person must do this
step. The nice thing is that these preferences are permanent until they are
changed. So a person barcoding can sign off and then sign in again and the
preferences will still be there.
***NOTE***The spine label may not have any information
indicating that the book is part of a multivolume set. However, we want this
information included so that future spine labels can be printed correctly. It
may be that the person barcoding will have to look for this information on the
book's spine or title pages. Please make a reasonable judgment as to how much
volume, year, or page number information to include on the item record.
***NOTE***If the book is only one volume then close out of the book's record. If the book is part of a multivolume set then just close the item record. Another item record can be created for the multivolume set without doing the call number search over again.
If any problems arise as this procedure being followed please check the Reference Barcoding Notes document to see if there is a solution. If not, then please contact a staff member in either Access or Technical Services. They will assist you. Thank you!
