Sound familiar? As we get ready to enter the 4th quarter of 2011, you are probably already seeing some 2012 editions of reference books arrive in your library. What do you do in the world of Polaris? Here’s the procedure–send the reference copy in to SRV for review with a note telling me that you’d like to circulate this book. I’ll review it with the Adult Non-Fiction selectors and we’ll take it from there.
Please remember, it’s not enough to just cover up the REFERENCE label, there are cataloging steps that must be done in order to make that item circulate. And catalogers are the only ones who can get in and “touch” those catalog records to make that happen.
