Improving Accurate Collection Access with Aleph Inventory

HFJ Library at Hampshire College has been running a stacks inventory this summer for the first time in current employee memory. At any of CUNY's 23 libraries there is almost always someone (somewhere) checking on the checking on the physical collection. Smith College Libraries are in the process of moving their entire collection out of current facilities. They are using the built in inventory shelf list function in Aleph for large scale inventories. Finding physical materials through the finest of Discovery solutions is only as accurate as how up to date one's catalog inventory is. Whether it is part of a Collection Development project, or just reconfirming what materials are on hand, it is an ongoing practical necessity for libraries. This session will include project overview, a walk through some of the Inventory options available to a library, how to clean up collection errors found by inventory and lessons learned from the process.
