New reference items–what to do with the older editions

When you receive the new edition of a reference item (like World Almanac), please remove the old edition and send it to SRV for review or  if you would like it to circulate.  We’ll review the item and send it through Cataloging to have the call number changed (removing the REF prefix) and the Polaris Collection designation changed and then to Materials Processing to have the REF label covered.

We checked with Barbara Hart and learned that staff are only allowed to change the circ status and shelf location, not collection designation or call number.
