Notes in catalog records
Other librarians may be told informally (through email, for example) when older reference materials are sent to storage.
Older journals are sent to storage from a branch library on a routine basis and this is stated in the online catalog.
10. What department is responsible for crafting and implementing the communication strategy about
which print materials to include in your on-site shelving area? N=20
Associate University Librarian, Collections/Services to Libraries
Because we have had on-site shelving for 30 years, there has been little need for a major communication strategy.
If we did, strategy would be set by the dean, the AUL for Collections, or the Library Executive Council. In general,
communications are tailored to specific disciplinary audiences by the relevant liaison librarians.
