Lost and Found in Delivery
SCLS Delivery maintains a list of items reported lost or found within the Wisconsin Libraries' Delivery Network. The list is available as a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet. It is updated as items are added or removed, and at the beginning of each month.
To add items to the list, please send the item information using the lost and found list item submission form. Please include as many of the following pieces of information as you have available:
- item format
- call number
- barcode number
- owning library
- additional notes
Submitted items will be added to the spreadsheet and a notice with the item information will be posted on the SCLS Delivery Service blog. Posts from March 2007 onward can be viewed in the blog archive.
Items not found or claimed are automatically removed from the list after six months.
Libraries are encouraged to periodically check their shelves to see if "lost" materials have been shelved at their library by mistake. If you find any lost items, please send them directly to the owning library. If a lost item has been returned to you please notify us to have it removed from the list.
Questions about the list or the submission procedure can be directed to Tim Drexler.
The Lost and Found list
Items on the list are organized into two worksheets in the Excel file: a "lost list" and a "found list". Both lists can be accessed by their worksheet tabs. Data can be sorted by the information in any column. In addition, autofilters have been added to the "format," "month posted," and "owning library" columns to facilitate easy sorting.
