Congratulations to North Carolina State University, the latest STAR library…and thanks to them for sharing some of their innovatve practices are :
“We adjust processing schedules around consortial and campus delivery times. We participate in a state wide user group, NCILL. We have stopped using bookstraps and now insert the paperwork as a slip in the book, which patrons like and which streamlines our receives and returns.”
