Stock hell

Still working my way through the stock analyses for CIPFA. My God it's depressing.

I raised a little cheer in my office when the first library -- Carbootsale -- turned out to have a two-figure percentage of children's non-fiction on loan (10.0%, as it happens).

Audio stock is much, much more depressing. Possibly because although we have a colossal income target for audio rentals we don't allow anyone to have more than four CDs out at a time.

You mean you look at the figures rather than just copying them into Cipfa's spreadsheet and hoping for the best?

I know... I'm incapable of learning any better.

See, this makes perfect sense to Cow.

Restrict number of checkout when you want increased checkouts.

That's how we do things in Topiaryville, too.
