Keeping up with tech services

The UPS driver continues to bring new orders the technical services. With the first - and second - start-up funds spent and cataloging under way, responsibility for these items circles back to me. Keeping up with our cataloger's brisk pace has been a daily challenge! Within three days she has cataloged activity books (sixteen different classifications), a collection of leveled book kits, and this afternoon the reference collection.

Building electronic access links to the collection is time consuming, especially since I elected to do so from catalog records prior to book order slips being delivered, and essential. The information it presents to the IRC Columbus Center Committee, translates to an immediately viable resource as end of year staff meetings in Columbus featured the blog and web page with mention of the LibGuide planned for the next few weeks.
