Routing Notes for New Books

Routing Notes are placed in the Library Note field of an item's order record (usually by Rebecca), and are transfered to a routing slip inserted into the book by the person who receives the item (Susan, for the majority of monographic items.)

Cat to Ref : This order will be given the code of “URF” in the “Collection” field in its item record.

Show Ref - This order will be put on the Ref Consideration shelves after receipt.

Cat to Ref latest vol. - This item will be cat to Ref. The earlier edition already in Reference will be sent to the stacks.

De-Ref earlier vol. - This note is not necessary and is covered under “Ref latest vol.”

Notify - NOTE: Notify notes are no longer placed on slips, only in the “Library Note” field of the order record, except in cases where there are multiple “Notify” or “Hold” requests for the same item. This note is put on orders when selectors feel a Professor or other patron might want to be notified about the receipt of a book in their subject area. When the item is received, notice is sent to the patron via email, at which point they can put a hold on the item if they so choose. When recording this note, please use the patron's complete name and e-mail address.

Hold for - This note is used for professors, staff, and students who have requested an item. These materials receive rush treatment. When using this note, please give the patron's complete name and e-mail address. If a class name and semester is indicated in the order record for a book that is to be on reserve for a class, transfer that information to the routing slip as well.

If in doubt about the relevence of information provided in an order record's Library Note field, consult Susan or Rebecca, or simply transfer the information to a routing slip exactly as it's found in the order record's Library Note field.
