Documents Cataloging Project
With pilot 2 concluding on May 15, CMG discussed whether catalogers should continue working or pause temporarily.
Rush Requests from Holds
Based on reports generated by Jason, Doug is assuring that uncataloged items with holds are cataloged rush.
Doug reported that the Storage Committee has not discussed yet the issue Naomi raised about copy 2's (etc.) from branches retaining the original copy designations when transferred to storage. He will follow-up with Ben Walker, chair.
In relation to Dean Russell's desire to meet periodically with departments, CMG decided to invite her to two department meetings (last 30 minutes) and two CMG meetings per year. Rachel would like to be included in department meetings and will be added to the meeting requests as they are distributed.
Shelf Ready Class Together Material
Doug asked for input re. WCP records for multivolume sets loading with the volume number in an 035 on the bib and an 866 on the holding. CMG recommended talking to Paul about changing the setup so that this does not occur.
