Abstract

The University of Iowa Libraries chose not to purchase a separate piece of software to manage a non-traditional offsite storage facility. Instead, they combined Aleph functions and fields with some locally created scripts to track items in the facility. The local scripts update the location information in the sublibrary and collection fields, update the inventory number of the items, and verify the items have been re-shelved properly. Aleph functionality was also used to facilitate retrieval of items. This presentation will present the processes put in place as well as the reasons behind the decisions that were made to handle storage items in this way.
