When I was here on Wednesday, I noticed that the shelves had become completely cramped, so I shifted stuff around and adjusted our displays a bit to make things more visible and reduce some clutter. It took me about an hour and half’s work of time, which luckily I had since we were dead. I sent out an e-mail to my co-worker explaining what I had done and why, getting a commendation from my boss in the process. I come back after being gone from this location for one day, and everything is back the way it was before I had started, the shelves are cluttered, and everything out of order again. No-one informed me of the changes, no-one said anything to me.
This is what happens when I try. It’s why I so often don’t.
I understand having an American Civil War section in the library; it’s an important part of American history. But why, in Pueblo Bumblefuck Colorado, do we need a large section for it in our non-circulating reference collection with it’s own section lettering and everything? I could understand letting these books circulate (and in some cases they are, since we have circulating copies, too) but there’s not reason to keep them as in-house books other than as a bulletpoint on someone’s resume.
