Destination Unknown: Repurposing a Collection Stuck in Transit
In 2015, Covenant Seminary began implementing plans for a second campus. The Library received a donation of over 2,000 books to create a library on-site in Nashville, TN. Using a combination of paper work forms, Sierra Mobile Worklists, and simplified technical and physical processing, the bulk of this collection was ready to ship to Nashville within a year. When evolving realities on the ground failed to live up to expectations, library leadership decided this collection would best serve the institution’s needs if located on-site in St. Louis for the indefinite future. Using Create Lists, Excel, lots of math, and elbow grease, we set up this collection in a special location within the Covenant Seminary Library in St. Louis. We'll talk about barcode numbering; prepping and sorting physical books; quick technical and physical processing; collection development to augment the designated book donation; prep for shipment and unloading off-site; the actual set up when off-site became on-site; and the use of the collection and the space to-date.

The after-hours Library concept: open+ with Bibliothecha
open+ is a comprehensive system that allows libraries to provide more flexible hours, making them more accessible to the community. Designed to complement staffed library hours, open+ can be implemented in a number of different ways to meet various library service models. From extending access to an entire library or only a section of it, providing full self-service resources or mainly a holds pick-up area, open+ allows libraries the flexibility to extend access in the way that best meets the needs of their community and space. There is no one size fits all approach with this technology.
Adding more open hours in the mornings or evenings can create a consistent and convenient schedule for your community and meet the needs of different users. Currently averaging 52.8 open hours per week, US public libraries have a way to go before they approach 2008’s high mark of nearly 60 hours, according to Library Journal1. open+ allows libraries to easily increase their hours to provide the most convenient access to their community without a large need for increased staffing cost.

New from the digital collaboration frontlines: update on DPLA and Missouri Hub
DPLA, the Digital Public Library of America, aggregates metadata for digitized resources and offers a portal for searching across collections. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of MOBIUS, MissouriHub was able to join DPLA in 2018 as a full member. (MOBIUS rocks!) How has the membership model changed our relationship with DPLA? What else is going on with DPLA? (Spoiler alert: A lot.) What are MissouriHub's plans for the coming year?
