A Review of the Shelving Process in the Glendale Young People's Library.
Applegate, H. C.
At the request of the Children's Librarian, a brief review of the Young People's Library shelving process and control desk arrangement was made. For the shelving process, a time-spent survey was made to determine the relative amounts of time spent on the various phases of the operation. A special questionnaire was designed, and the library pages entered their labor time in minutes every day for four weeks. Time averages were computed, a flow analysis made, and process discussion held with the staff. No significant changes were recommended for the process, since it was being performed as well as conditions permit. For the control desk a suggested arrangement called for relocating a portion of the unused periodicals desk on the ground floor. This report describes the studies which were made for the Young People's Library and presents the data and conclusions. (Author/SL)
