Inside Access: New training bulletin for circulating BOOKSPEC items from the Annex

by Sarah Billman, Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library

1,917 holdable BOOKSPEC! One could end up at a circulation desk near you!

Access Services Training Bulletin #43: BOOKSPEC Items from the Annex describes methods for circulating BOOKSPEC items housed in the Annex. BOOKSPEC items from the Annex are normally to be used in the library, due to high replacement costs. However, it also allows circulation points to use judgement to make exceptions to the default circulation period in response to patron need. Exceptions may be made locally.

The training bulletin encourages library staff to alert patrons at time of checkout about the material’s replacement value.

Training Bulletin #43 can be found on the Access Services Training Bulletins staff page at https://staff.libraries.psu.edu/access-services-council/training-bulletins-numerical.
