Seminar Objectives-Participant will access and select reports for making decisions regarding the elementary library collection
Work Summary-Participants will access and select reports for books labeled as "Caldecott". Approximately 50 Caldecott winners were separated from the general collection into its own. Participant wanted these books integrated back into the general collection to align with library instruction and skills for locating books based on Dewey number. Caldecott labels covering the Dewey numbers were removed and books were re-shelved into the general collection. This activity allow participant to experience another librarian's philosophy on shelving books and solidify her own philosophy.
-Participant learned how to globally delete about 300 outdated biography books and demonstrated this knowledge
-Participants learned how to create special collections in Follett, should she wish to do that in the future
-Approximately 80 books were catalogued as ABC and Number books. These, like the Caldecott winners, were placed into their own section. The Dewey numbers were covered with a red or yellow sticker. Participant wanted these books integrated into the general collection and accessed cataloging records to confirm the books could be re-shelved once the stickers were removed. As the facilitator was helping to remove stickers, the facilitator noticed that some spine labels were incorrectly labeled. for example,
which was changed to E 363.5 Wil
This format is standard for the rest of the collection. Participant learned how to format spine labels and print new ones.
Assessment of Learning-Questions and answers
-Navigation through sites
-Continued training OverDrive and Union Catalog
Evaluation Summary Notes-All training went well
Needed Changes-Nothing
Next Steps-The biography section uses Dewey number 92. Some books are catalogued as 920 because they are a collection of biographies (top 10 basketball players, presidents, first ladies, etc.). The facilitator suggested participant can globally change the classification number to B or Bio and create a Biography section. Doing so is appropriate for elementary students since the current labeling of biographies is confusing - 92s are shelved in the beginning of the non-fiction section while 920s are shelved at the end (which is on the other end of the library).
