Passes that are renewed annually need to be removed from circulation when the new passes are cataloged. They should be physically removed from circulation as well as removing them from the bib record.
This applies to:
- Atlanta History Center
- Alliance theater
- Georgia State Park Passes
These passes expire on December 31 of each year and should be removed as soon as possible after that date.
There are two options to remove the old passes from circulation:
- Delete the prior year copies
- Replace the barcode on the prior year copies and change the call number to reflect the new year
Either option will preserve your statistics for the Annual Report, it is purely local preference.
Lost and Long Overdue Passes
Passes that are lost or long overdue should be deleted one year after the last due date. Patrons will still have the billing on their account, regardless of whether the item is deleted. For more information on handling Long Overdue items, see Long Overdue Items.
The GEER Chromebooks and Logitech cameras are generally on these two records, but your Launchpads could be on many different records. You may also have used a different record for Chromebooks, but this is where most people's are located.
When cataloging items for the GEER grant, there are two statistical categories that must be filled in.
- GPLS Grant Projects
- GPLS Grants - Item Use Type
For GEER items, the value for GPLS Grant Projects should be selected as GEER.
For all applicable GPLS grant project items, you must also select a value for the GPLS Grants - Item Use Type. See below for the available values, and an explanation of when to use each.
|Classes||Item will be used for classes to be held at a library branch|
|External Checkout||Item will be checked out to an individual patron for use at home|
|Internal Checkout||Item to be used by a patron while in the library (i.e. in house use)|
|Outreach||Item to be used for outreach events or in outreach vehicles|
|Partnership||Item checked out to community partners through PINES|
|Pending||Use is currently not decided. Items should not indefinitely stay as Pending; once it is determined how the item is to be used, this value should be changed to one of the other options.|
|Public Computing Station||Item will remain inside the library and used for patrons to access the OPAC or Internet.|
