This policy and procedure addresses how to process shelf ready fallout. Books 'fallout' of the shelf-ready program for several reasons:

  1. The supplied vendor record failed to load, usually because the ISBN in the shelf ready book record matches an ISBN already in the database. These materials have a spine label.
  2. A bib record was not available either through the vendor (using LC Books English database) or OCLC WorldCat when the title was processed. These materials do not have spine label.
  3. A bib record was available at the time of processing that either lacked a call number or contained an incomplete call number. These materials do not have a spine label.
  4. Inaccurate barcode data was passed through the vendor-supplied constant data.

1.  Search Sirsi for a record
2.  Confirm barcode on piece matches Call Number/Item record Item ID field
3.  Note the Library
4.  Search OCLC WorldCat for a record match
