Today, I began the routine of turning on computers and pulling up browsers. I also turned on the circ computer and opened SirsiDynix Workflows, changed the green and blue cards to have the correct due date stamp, and talked with the morning parent volunteer. When Heather arrived, they talked about her schedule and the spring volunteer tea party that Heather is planning for the end of April. Heather and I discussed the Usborne book order and representative visit in the afternoon, the new Head of School welcome (parent breakfast this morning for her), and Heather’s presentation for the exit meeting she is having with the previous Head (he came 3 years before her, so it had matching photos of their daughters in the library – desktop versus tablet, circulation data, layout changes, etc). We went over the schedule for the day and what she will be teaching. Her daughter’s bike is still missing!
Next, I met with Jenn Milam, the Director of Curriculum. I shared my relevant materials with her via email and later typed up our meeting notes separately. I then came back to co-teach the last half of Heather’s 4th grade classes as they learned about title pages, end pages, copyright data, and citing sources. At 1pm, I joined Heather, Vicki, and the three technology staff members to meet the new Head.
After this meeting, we went over Demco.com (or LibraryStore). I got the *Free 3 of 9 font* and used Kapco material to cover a new book. I made plan for Will Hillenbrand’s Ask10 – we will walk students down to the artwork in the hallway of his, show them where his books are in the library on the shelves (Easy, H), and then read and write questions for him in the Storywell.
Then, we met with the Usborne representative. I had completed the Google Sheet with our list of books on Wednesday night, so I downloaded this and emailed it to her. I noted the bar coding and processing form as Heather filled it out for her -
Barcode label font choice: Arial 11 (serif versus non-serif font)
Note: Heather suggested I make sure to keep track of barcode ranges (they did not when she started or at previous schools).
Cataloging items checked:
Web download, bar code label (attached), spine label only
Data disk: DYNIX
Type of computer: IBM
What data format? 91 USMARC (852)
Barcode - 3 (book) 7904 (location) last digit (random) – if cover, then see # of book
It was a busy, productive day!
