Overview

The Stodocs Project is a major initiative to catalog 300,000 items for pre-1976 US federal documents held in the Auxiliary Library Facility (ALF).  After two pilots, the project was fully implemented beginning fall 2009.

 

Statistics

as of September 2013

Items: 163,271 (54% of target)

Number of items circulated: 352

StoDocs Project official reports

 

Why did we decide to catalog 300,00 government documents?

·        One third of the Regional Federal Depository Documents collection was moved precipitously to a remote storage facility

·        Criteria used to select documents for the move: numeric series (retrievable) and dust (low use)

·        The University purchased high density storage software that requires bar codes and bib records for all material.  This means that everything in storage has to be cataloged (even the low use documents) and barcoded for the software to record the physical location of the items.
