Moving Library Collections: Making a timeline
Once you've done your paper shift several times and you believe in your plans, figure out how much shifting can get done each day. You know how many minutes per section it should take to shift, you have a rough idea of how many staff hours will go into this shift, so count up how many sections you can do each day and draw a map of it, one map for every day of the shift. Post them on the wall in the ComPost.
If you find yourself with nothing to do at the end of each day, draw up another map (just color in sections) of what actually got done that day and post them right under the "projected for the day" maps. This gives you an easy way of telling where you're supposed to be, and where you are at the end of each day.
It also answers lots of questions from staff and others who want to know how the project is coming.
