NCompass Live: Are You Afraid of the Big, Bad Inventory?

Join us for the next NCompass Live, ‘Are You Afraid of the Big, Bad Inventory?’, on Wednesday, June 6, 10:00am – 11:00am CT.

Some libraries are experts at running inventories on a regular basis and their listings in their catalog are almost 100% accurate. Many other libraries have either NEVER done an inventory, have only done 1 in the last 10 years, or have started an inventory and never finished. Inventories can be scary and they can frighten people away. Come learn a few tips and tricks on completing a successful inventory. Learn how Keene Memorial Library just completed their first inventory in at least 20 years and hear about the pros, cons, and what we learned from our mistakes. Learn why it is important to do an inventory on a regular basis. Maybe that big, bad inventory won’t keep you up at nights after you hear our secrets.

Presenter: Tina Walker, Director, Keene Memorial Library (Fremont, NE).
