Kicking off our cataloguing process!

INVENTORY & ARCHIVE MANAGEMENT

Since launching our crowdfunding campaign towards cataloguing existing collections housed across all three branches of the library, we have raised a total of $6,342 from 50 donors. Your donation has enable us to plan for our inventory process. Here are some highlights; 

Need for Cataloguing: There is still little to no knowledge about the size of the collections housed in the three libraries. The staff estimate is 400,000+ books and objects, and this inventory process aims to provide a definite number as well as identify content gaps.

Staffing for Research and Inventory: Our call-out for a Research and Inventory lead received 204 applications while a call for volunteers to assist in this process elicited 418 applications. We are currently interviewing for this lead role as well as volunteers, closing this process by 1st April 2019. 

Timelines: We will be training our new Inventory lead as well as volunteers for the inventory process from 3rd- 5th April 2019, with cataloguing set to begin in the Kaloleni branch on 8th April 2019, lasting until mid-June. This process will involve recording of ISBNs, year of publication, condition of book/object and all other necessary data. In the meantime, we have begun building a wishlist of books for children and will be adding to this throughout the inventory process.
