Expecting the Unexpected: Gifts Workflows in Technical Services
In this presentation, speakers from diverse institution types will share their methods for the processing and cataloging of gift materials. From large gifts to small donations, these materials can cause a disruption in the normal workflow patterns of a technical services unit. The speakers will describe the types of workflows they use to process and catalog these unplanned materials. Points that will be touched on will include: participation by technical services staff in gift policy creation, decisions regarding acceptance of some materials that can be made in technical services, what the workflows look like for gifts as opposed to other materials, the real “cost” of gifts, and tips for making gift processing less painful.
