This volume was found in one branch, stamped for another, and sent to me because its barcode was not in the catalog. We have two additional copies of the title in storage, so the selector chose not to keep this duplicate.
Trial in a goldfish bowl [videorecording] / produced by ATS/CLE State Bar of Wisconsin in cooperation with Media-Law Renations [i.e. Relations] Committee of the State Bar of Wisconsin. (OCLC #43042952)
When we bought this title in 1985, it consisted of 5 U-matic videocassettes and a manual. The video is a mock trial (based on an actual case) in which a boy was injured in a farm machinery accident. It was designed as a teaching aid for journalism students learning to report on trials. We no longer have the cassettes (or a way to play them in the library), and though the manual (likely) contains the full script of the tapes, it is not as useful for its intended purpose.
Commonwealth of Kentucky : report no. 7 (in two volumes) : University of Kentucky / Division of Education Studies, Griffenhagen and Associates. (OCLC #38058844)
This title was on the problem shelf as an envelope containing the contents of two disbound volumes (now just a stack of paper). We already have an intact copy in special collections, and a microfilm copy for which we created the OCLC master record – my suspicion is that the copy I have in hand is the one that was filmed! The selector did not want to add it back to the collection as an additional print copy, as it is now in such poor condition.
Based on the demo that ran when I (against my better judgment) put this mysterious CD into my workstation, the LabBook Genomic XML Viewer looked like some pretty sweet software in 2001-2002. Unfortunately, the download button does nothing, and LabBook.com (which “powered” the software) is now a parked GoDaddy page (registrant in Hyderabad).
The state houses of South Carolina, 1751-1936, by A.S. Salley, secretary, Historical commission of South Carolina. (OCLC #4226400)
Do you have any piles of mysterious work that have been lurking on a nearby shelf so long that nobody remembers why they are there? Today I am attacking one of those!
This bound pamphlet looked straight-forward enough: clear cover title, call number on the cover, barcode in the back – but the cover of the pamphlet actually contains no pages!
On the shelf under that call number was another pamphlet binding that now contains the pamphlet’s contents. It also has its own barcode too; in fact, both barcodes are attached to the same item in Voyager (one inactive).
I removed the cover’s barcode from Voyager, and discarded that item, after marking out the barcode sticker and call number so that it does not get rescued from the trash and returned to the book drop.
