Thing 16: Google Docs

Whew. This took awhile. We've been trying to figure out a way to make reports generated from our ILS more usable. So, I made other staff members help me with this activity. This google doc is a test. We took the "Missing Items" report off of our ILS and moved it into this format. This will now enable any staff member to access it any time and work on it. We list the missing books and then do three shelf checks. Once the item is deemed really truly missing we can now forward, via Dewey classification, to the appropriate staff member's assigned collection development. We've been playing around with this document but it looks like this is the new way we'll be handling and resolving all of those missing items. I'm only including a portion of it and it's not so pretty yet, but we'll continue refining it. Here's the URL
