Info for Library Staff

Transferring to Oak Street High Density Storage

The CMS staff in the Main Library are now taking care of transferring all materials to Oak Street High Density Storage.

The CMS staff in the Main Library will process all transfers, updating catalog records as needed, then send the items to the CMS staff at Oak Street. Having one unit handle both ends of transfers will improve communication, remove some of the workload from departmental libraries, and ensure consistent record maintenance.

If you are dealing with materials already accessioned at Oak Street, please see Library Staff Working with Oak Street Materials.


Small Transfers

If you have a transfer project with only a small number of items (less than 100 total), you can simply:

  1. In Voyager, set each item's status to "In Process".
  2. Insert the streamer below in each item.
  3. Put in shipping as usual. (Do NOT route in Voyager.)

Oak Street Transfer Streamers

If you sending a serial, please either send it all at once, or indicate on streamers for the first and last volumes you are sending what your library is keeping (e.g.: "library has last three years").


Large Transfers

If you have a transfer project with more than 100 items, please submit the CMS Project Request Webform.


Streamers in Stacks

If you--or a GSLIS course you are working with--manually mark Stacks books for transfer to Oak Street using the yellow streamers, please email Mary and Jenny when the selection process is complete:
