[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Method for collection inventory

Hello Everyone

I was wondering if anyone has ever used In House Use reports for inventory instead of Status Change Date? We use Status Change Date for weeding because we don’t have circulation history past a year due to a recent migration.  I can’t get the In House Use reports to provide items that have not been used.  Any suggestions?

PINES has inventory instructions at http://pines.georgialibraries.org/inventory While they are PINES specific, there are generalities that may prove useful.

We are planning on conducting an inventory on parts of our overall collection. We envision scanning each title. Are there web client versions of SPARK that can allow for checking item status or in-house circ? That way we could run this off of an iPad.

Otherwise we would use a laptop with the staff client open and bring it around with a scanner.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
