we hav e a few good submissions already... Mold anyone?
Anna Foote - NEKLS
29:18
Mold definitely is a “plus” (at least for this contest)!
NEKLS - George Williams
30:25
So, does AIDS hurt? What's the verdict in that book?
Anna Foote - NEKLS
30:53
IT WAS THE SUBTITLE! Feminism!
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
38:07
If you came late, we are taking questions as they come up, type them in chat, or just unmute yourself and ask away

I just had a bunch of books donated. Can't use most so have contacted the school to see if they would like some. The wonderful lady who donated said we could do what we wanted with them
NEKLS - George Williams
43:40
Cost of adding an item equals the number of items added per year divided by the annual cost of materials (book covers, barcode labels, stamps, etc.) plus the total pay and benefits of the staff members processing those items.
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
44:05
Freedom to view? don't know this one
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
44:27
will get links for all of these for all of us
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
44:36
Thanks!
Traci Smith-Carbondale

The donation issue is definitely becoming more prevalent as we are building our new library. People offering to the community to store donations for us, in spite of my explanation that there is a lot of effort involved in processing books, and we need to add desired items and not just fill the shelves. Small towns are interesting in that there are more feelings involved, comments like, "Grandma is so excited to see her romance novel collection in the new library!" We definitely need to update our policies to help with this issue.
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
46:42
Preach on
Genea Lyndon
46:57
Does that mean we can't put the R rating on it.
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
48:08
Does that mean we need to take the rating stickers off?
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
48:41
I have a board meeting tonight
Genea Lyndon
50:00
Can I have an orange label on them and in a different area of the family ones.
Laura DeBaun
50:22
I would consider this a "procedure" issue - not a policy statement
Genea Lyndon
53:01
It is accessible, they are all in the same area. Thank you.
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
54:10
yeah! We have Freedom to read and Freedom to View as an appendix in our policy
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
54:25
good job Connie!
Traci Smith-Carbondale
55:03
Starting from the ground up like we are getting ready to do is great, but also overwhelming. I'd be completely lost without NEKLS offering to help me when the time comes! This information is so timely and much appreciated. Is there a way to print all these slides later?
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
55:22
We will share out slides, and the video!
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
55:32
I had person tell me one time I could not get rid of Danielle Steel books. [she was not a patron] I told her we did not have anyone reading them anymore so I do not buy the new ones any longer
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
55:36
also sample policies
Traci Smith-Carbondale
55:41
Wonderful, thank you, Dan!
Traci Smith-Carbondale
56:02
Haha, great idea!
NEKLS - George Williams

The library in Moscow, Idaho, had a huge collection of books with knitting patterns and my wife never used that section of the Moscow library. She went to the library in Pullman, Washington, where they only had about 25% of the number of knitting books. The reason my wife liked that collection more is because, if she wanted to browse, she didn't have to go through 20 books full of leg warmers and Cosby sweaters to find a book with new patterns.
Traci Smith-Carbondale
57:54
Lol, great point, George! :D
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
58:03
Any one who brings in donations I give a speech. We take donations, we will use what we can but what we can't we will sell or give away [unless you would like them back] NO ONE wants them back
NEKLS - George Williams
58:57
You should not have the 2012 Study for the GRE book.
Kia Boyd- APL
01:00:23
Should we be weeding those irrelevant books when people are still checking it out? we have people who want a book on an outdated version of mac because they don't necessarily know the difference, for example. Our weeding is heavily done by circ rate, but if it is incredibly out of date I want to get rid of it.
Mike McDonald
01:04:34
NEKLS folks . . . the CREW method that Gail is championing here is the same approach we recommend for weeding. NEKLS can assist you with using this tool.
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
01:05:48
I have more adults reading the YA books than teens. So they do read some of the older stuff
NEKLS - George Williams
01:09:19
I was whistling "The Chipmunk Song" until Gail mentioned The Monkees. Now I'm on to "Pleasant Valley Sunday."
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
01:09:39
thank god for mute
Anna Foote - NEKLS
01:09:40
I love that description of the children’s section!
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
01:09:59
Anna, I love it too
NEKLS - George Williams
01:10:06
I have a compulsive whistling disorder.
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
01:10:16
When Gail said the chipmunks was old I thought of the Crickets they were before the Chipmunks LOL
Laura DeBaun
01:15:59
Thank you Gail!!
Traci Smith-Carbondale
01:16:11
This was so very helpful, thank you Gail and NEKLS!!
Gail Santy
01:16:26
You are very welcome Traci!
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
01:16:30
Thank You Gail! I got more weeding to do!
Gail Santy
01:16:46
Don’t be afraid to get that weeding done, Connie.
Kia Boyd- APL
01:17:38
Oh my god that inventory was the worst...
Gail Santy
01:17:47
At CKLS we inventoried our rotating collections in January.
Gail Santy
01:18:02
We uncovered all the lost stuff and got the catalog cleaned up.
Gail Santy
01:19:03
The inventory report is really cool and a great help.
Kia Boyd- APL
01:19:06
just know guys that when you are inventorying the stuff you have marked missing inventory doesn't show up on the catalog.... So doing that while you are closed to the public during a wquartantine and the catalog is the only way for them to see the collection is the wrong way to go.
Shae Williamsburg
01:19:22
Weeding and inventory are done continuously at Williamsburg.
Gail Santy
01:19:30
Good job, She!
Gail Santy
01:20:10
Opps! Shae.
Gail Santy
01:25:25
I love the local copies and catalog columns. I want that!
Shae Williamsburg
01:26:27
Love this!
Dan Alexander, NEKLS
01:27:00
wrapping up here folks!
Traci Smith-Carbondale
01:27:35
haha, love it!
Anna Foote - NEKLS
01:28:31
Yay, Gail!!! Thanks so much!
Wendy Conover, Baldwin City Public Library
01:28:32
Thank you, Gail!
Connie Weber [Richmond Public]
01:28:43
When is the December meeting again?
Gail Santy
01:28:47
You should all feel empowered to weed! Go forth!
Kia Boyd- APL
01:29:06
Thank you guys! And thank you Gail. I've already messaged the others about the rating stickers.

A great make and take is book art like folding
Kia Boyd- APL
