Everyone likes numbers right? How about a numerical run down of the year:
176 — books cataloged in the Ballroom and Newman Room, covering linguistics and literature
854 — books cataloged in the Scholars Lounge, covering general knowledge and starting on the (robust) Philosophy section
929 — books cataloged in the Stacks, covering
a few of my favorite things history, politics, art and music.
115— books from the end of the semester that still need to be checked in and included in the numbers above, for a total of…
2,074 books checked in or cataloged during the 2015-2016 academic year.
42,945 — estimated number of volumes in the library
That puts us at a completion rate of 5%.
17 — Saturday cataloging days in the 2nd semester
48 — Blog posts
822 — Blog page views (thank you!)
Given the fact that I’m not able to devote full time to the library, I’m pretty happy with the progress we’ve made. Would I love to have done more? Sure, who wouldn’t? But for a part time librarian with part time student workers, the numbers are respectable.
More to come on the projects for the summer and into next year, in the mean time enjoy these pictures from Saturday
