RUSH and High Priority for Media Library
Manuel Urrizola / Toshu Takamaru / Jean Weiss

January 27, 2010

For questions about this policy, please contact Manuel Urrizola.

Since most media material is acquired by patrons’ requests, it is treated as high priority and RUSH for both Acquisitions and Cataloging. The Acquisitions Department will place all videos on the MEDIA, DVD, VHS shelf to be cataloged as received. Then the cataloged videos will be taken to Processing and from there be sent to the Media Library.

EXCEPTION: If there is a RUSH request and no media cataloger is available, the uncataloged material will be sent over with an item record, barcode, and accession number, but no cataloging date. Also, a message will be added to the item record:

Example: Sent to Media Library, uncataloged. Return to media cataloger when patron is finished. jw 1/27/2010.

If videos must be hand delivered, only Media Library representatives can pick up the videos. Proper security measures will be taken throughout the transfer process.Media materials will be locked in a cabinet in case of any delays.
