Conscious of the library management's interest in culling most duplicates before moving the collection, BGIC staff consulted with the U.
During the final summer of collection preparation, the head of BGIC and one Catalog Assistant barcoded and created brief records for 1,226 uncataloged oversized publications.
A technician in BGIC and the Catalog Librarian worked together to create brief or full catalog records for most international government monographs and serials, and for selected State of Nevada and RAND Corporation publications.
BGIC staff used 11 inches as a target to allow enough empty space for staff to browse the publications in a bin sector.
The head of BGIC formed a four-person team to check all yellow-carded sections for these problems.
The cataloged materials from BGIC and the materials relocated to the open stacks were moved by professional movers, but library staff--primarily Cataloging Department and BGIC staff--moved the yellow-card sections to ensure that the sections remained intact.
Once this work was underway, a new deadline had to be set for vacating the old library and a second shift was added to the BGIC moving team.
