Dear Catalog Department staff members,

As you are probably aware, the backlog of materials awaiting processing in Preparations is pretty large and we are looking for ways to make the process as efficient as possible. Preparations and Preservation staff met earlier today and have requested that I ask you to help them in a couple of ways.

1) Make sure that any location riders/flags (for Reference, CCL, etc.) are visible when you put a book on the Preparations truck. These flags are used to sort priority categories, so if they are not visible or are missing, the item may not receive priority treatment.

2) Hand deliver all Rush and Rush/Requester items to a member of the Preparations Staff. It is not sufficient to place them on a truck loaded with regular work. This "special delivery" will help Preparations keep its commitment to Access Services for prompt, same-day processing.


Thanks in advance for your assistance.
