Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Paid positions'
"The Lord has blessed me with a full time job since 1989 as church library director. I have the luxury of being in a very large church that makes this possible. There is also one other full time staff member and a part-time staff member along with…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'How would you deal with this borrower?'
"Oh my!!!  If it is any consolation you are not alone in this problem. We have similar difficulties all the time. These patrons  know exactly what they are doing and apparently have no conscience about it. Quite simply it is theft and…"

"I really like the way the room is arranged and decorated. Very inviting."

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Weeding of VHS Tapes'
"My struggle is not what to do with the old VHS tapes but how to replace them. Many of them are still relevant and would be used if on DVD. It is too costly to replace all of them immediately so should we dispose of them anyway?  Eventually we…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'magazines'
"We don't circulate magazines but have often thought they should be included in our circulation statistics. I would think you could do some brief cataloging in Concourse that would suffice for getting your circulation usage count if they are…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Book Systems Atrium Program'
"We've been using Atrium for six years now and we love it. Used Concourse before that from Book Systems too. As with any new system it takes some learning to get used to it but once it is mastered it is great. There is a yearly service…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Kindle concept revisited'
"We did try this in our library and got limited response. Perhaps we didn't promote it enough because shortly thereafter we went the route of Overdrive which has been extremely popular. I do think, however, buying Kindles and loading them with…"

"We put such books in 616.8 with the number extended as applies."

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'How to catalog Bible audio books'
"In the past we too separated these big sets into smaller sets but as of late we just check out the whole multi disc set. Lot of work to separate and package and catalog in smaller groups. It's true they can't listen to the whole thing in…"

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Author name change'
"I would use the letters for the name on the book in question but add some cross references in your cataloging so patrons looking for Heatherly would see Landorf and vice versa.  "

"Ralph Reed and Jason Elam have written some fiction."

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'vertical file?'
"We used it to hold magazine articles, newspaper clippings, photos, small pamphlets and historical related pieces. Other than historical related pieces the vertical file has become somewhat obsolete with so much available on the web."

Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'Weeding magazine collections'
"We too keep our magazines for two years. We even bind some of them and keep them permanently. We do not let patrons check out magazines. So many magazines are going all digital now that our selection is down. "
Mar 23, 2016
Paul Adams replied to the discussion 'vertical file'
"We've primarily kept newspaper clippings, pamphlets, photos, papers,  tracts and other items too small or fragile to be kept on the shelves with the books. Being in the digital age we have added very few items as of late."
