"Please Check Shelves"

Spencer sent a note to BBLIBS yesterday after a CUNY student traveled to Baruch to borrow a book that was listed in CUNY+ with the unfortunate instructions to "Please Check Shelves." I spoke to Mike to clarify why these records show up and what they mean. Apparently some books that were discarded and deleted in NOTIS still show records in CUNY+; some journal titles are in the collection but are missing tags and they will also have a bad record in CUNY+. The only way that these records will be removed from the catalog is if we, the librarians, are conscientious about reporting the records when we see them. Please send a copy of the record by e-mail or print to Michael Waldman who will make immediate corrections.
