Library Shelving Facility staff members process one million items in 11 months

At approximately 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, the staff members at Yale's Library Shelving Facility (LSF) accessioned (i.e, recorded the addition of) the one-millionth item to be transferred to the facility at 147 Leeder Hill Drive in Hamden in fiscal year 2012. It was a book entitled “The Wisdom of the Mythtellers” by Sean Kane and it was sent from Sterling Memorial Library. While there was neither a chiming of bells nor a shower of confetti when the milestone was reached, there were congratulations all around for the office of 15 who topped their goal (878,000 items) in less than 12 months.
