    • The status should be set to o (lib use only) once the item has been completely processed

    • If a book’s spine is too narrow for the spine label, place the label in the top left-hand corner of the book’s front cover

    • If the book has a book jacket, remove the book jacket, place it inside the book, and send it back to Jewish Studies along with the cataloged book

  • Book run:

    • Pack books for shipping in the weekly book run
