Cleaning out our closets – our experience of a major journals stocktake project! - Sonia Freaney, National University of Ireland, Galway

  1. 1. Cleaning out our closets We were delighted with the end result a large study space created for students on Floor 2  With Library Space at a premium and more and more journals available electronically we could not justify having so many areas of the library taken up housing different journal collections.  We decided to move all print journals available online electronically to our off-site store A Print Journal Archive was created with important print journals being added to this so that they could never be discarded Overlap analysis of all journal titles carried out to see what was available  electronically perpetually, available electronically but not perpetually and not available at all electronically. Staff – Lack of Staff huge issue.  Large team involved including part-time shelvers, Head of Collections, Collection Management Librarian, Operations Librarian and Stewarding team. Only one small library van which can only move 8 boxes at a time– 1 box=1 shelf   Dirt and dust – Lots of very old and unused journals Space – Off site Store only has limited amount of space and creating space for specific class numbers is very time consuming 2016 A stock-take was carried out in the Off-site store in 2016 which created space so that journals could be moved there from Main Library where stock takes had been carried out over the preceding few years. May 2017 Overlap analysis by Head of Collections on Journals on Floor 1 and Floor 2 June -August 2017 Floor 1 discarding and journals taken from shelves to be moved to Off-site store Floor 2 discarding and moved to Floor 1 Floor 1 and Off-site Store stock move to make space for journals Summer spent moving, making space, fixing records and heavy lifting!
