Appearance Standards for the staff work areaGeneral Standards: Each staff workstation is neat, uncluttered and well supplied - All computer stationswill be organized in the same way and well supplied. -We suggest that the printers be kept on the right side of the table. - Kris will be responsible for the supply order list clipboard. Signs are relevant, up-to-date, easily readable, and placed in appropriate areas -Board area above the redbins with uncatalogued books and special handling seems cluttered with relevant and irrelevant information. We would like to revamp this area to contain updated information. This may be a good place for the “Five Signs of Escalating Behavior” and “3 Warning Signals” signs. - The signage on the south wall corner displays redundant information. We suggest removing these signs and moving collection codes higher. Elizabeth Mae wants to enlarge the collection codes signs. All drawers are labeled clearly for what they containOther suggestions for staff work area: 1) We suggest that all book carts face the same direction for ease of sorting items: handles face out with items’spines facing south. An email containing a diagram will be sent out to staff.
2) Create a staff work areafor reference staff and volunteers to use when creating displays/signs. We have discussed this idea with staff. This would be the counter area next to the copier/printer and laminator. - Keep the counter clear. - There would be a supply of colored papers kept in a two-drawer file cabinet (saves the effort of going to supply closet all the time). - Other supplies needed by librarians would be kept in another drawer - The bulletin board would be mounted on the wall above where it currently resides to free up counter space.3) There are 17 volunteers. Those whose pictures have not been taken would have their pictures added to the volunteer area.4) The four-drawer wood catalogue holder is empty and we no longer have a need for this piece.5) We need a box or lid to hold the supplies we use to process newspapers.
