YBP Shelf Ready materials are received by Acquisitions in the Main Library.
Materials will have a tan SHELF READY flag inserted, for ease of sorting by Processing. Shelf Ready materials should be delivered to the Copy Cataloger in Cataloging.
The materials received may or may not have spine labels, depending on whether they were shipped on the Literature account or the regular account, and if the bibliographic record has an 082. We requested that LIT materials not have spine labels affixed, as we frequently have to adjust the Dewey anyway.
The review serves several purposes. It is, effectively, copy cataloging. The review will verify the following:
Follow these steps to review these materials. Before you start, open two Alma tabs: one with Browse Shelf Listing and the other regular.
If the affixed spine label needs no adjustments, place the book on the cart and move to the next book.
Once the entire cart has been reviewed, proceed to scan in titles according to their next stop:
Relabel volumes as needed.
Remove the shelf ready flag and place volumes for reshelving on the reshelving cart.
Remove the shelf ready flag and hand-deliver requested volumes to ILS or CIRC as indicated on the inserted Notify flag.
Retain (or insert) the shelf ready flag in all volumes moving to a different ACQ Tech Service workflow.
Cataloging stats must also be recorded. Only count volumes delivered to reshelving, ILS / Circ, and relabeling. Added copies and volumes are counted separately from new titles. Volumes moving to another Tech Service process will be counted by the cataloger responsible for that process.
