Week Nine

This week I contacted Mr. Noel at Marcive. He was quick to respond and answered all of our questions. Most of our questions focused on what type of services the Cook Library receives from Marcive and how much each service costs. Recently I have been working with Ms. Englert and reviewing the changes that have occurred in how much Marcive has charged for their services. We both noticed that the amount has not changed much, but we did notice that if we could deselect about four hundred titles, we could get the reduced rate for a small library collection. Ms. Englert told her supervisor about this discovery and I went directly to the collection and began to see what items were duplicates. Ms. Englert and I thought that if there are many duplicates, we could remove them and get closer to our goal of four hundred titles. This move could potentially save the library over nine hundred dollars.
