Kick Off Checklist of Tasks
A checklist (3rd revision) of tasks for CMI liaisons prior to October
1 launch date.
Remove current issues and bound volumes for all journal titles that
have been selected for the study from the shelves (see http://www.ucop.edu/cmi/data.html
for database of Final Matched Pairs with Experimental Coverage).
Mark current issues and bound volumes with labels, with the exception
of campuses depositing at the NRLF.
Relocate current issues and bound volumes to storage location, e.g.,
NRLF, SRLF or local storage facility.
Post signs on empty shelves where journal volumes were shelved to
alert users that UC is participating in a research study and that
an electronic version of the title is available (see http://www.ucop.edu/cmi/publicity.html
for adaptable text for signs).
Create handouts from adaptable text provided at http://www.ucop.edu/cmi/publicity.html
to be used at public service desks and at the shelf as appropriate.
Provide comment cards at public service desks and at the shelves
where experimental titles were shelved (see http://www.ucop.edu/cmi/publicity.html
for adaptable text for comment cards)
Send out opening day letter to faculty and campus administrators,
if determined appropriate. (see http://www.ucop.edu/cmi/publicity.html
for adaptable text)
Submit news articles to local campus newsletters/newspapers (see
for adaptable text)
Make copies of the survey form to be included with a study volume,
issue or photocopy returned from storage at the request of a user
Coordinate with SRLF, NRLF and local storage facilities to retain
copies of requests for current issues and volumes relocated to an
RLF or to a local storage facility and develop procedures to match
requests with survey forms
Change bibliographic holdings records in local online catalogs to
reflect the change in location of the experimental titles
Mark current issues and volumes of study titles with labels so that
library staff will be able to determine which volumes/issues are part
of the study.
Insert Use Data Slips inside the front or back cover of study volumes
and current issues. These slips will be used by staff to record "each
instance of re-shelving."
Create handouts from adaptable text.
RLF's and Campus Storage Units*
