Business Library has transferred collections to ReCAP since 2002. Collections include circulating collecions of monographs, serials and microfilm; non-circulating collections of corporate annual reports. It has one CLIO locations assigned for off-site collections:
- off,bus : circulating general collections (circ)
- off,bssc : BS-barcode special collections (noncirc)
Business collections correspond to two customer codes:
- CU : allow delivery to all CUL and ReCAP partner libraries (off,bus)
- BS : allow delivery only to Business Library (off,bssc)
Business Library has progressed several phases of transfer. The initial phase included transfers of 10-prefix barcoded collections from Clancy-Cullen's temporary shelving facility in the Bronx and BS-prefix barcodes from Uris.
Phases of smart barcoding include: 2002 (CU5), 2004/2005 (CU6) and 2008/2009 (CU6). Collections have been transferred from several physical locations: Uris stacks, Uris basement, Prentis, Annex and new acquisitions from MPS via BSP.
Large shift of on-campus collections from the main stacks to the Lehman basement (leh,bdis) took place in 2012. MRP has been working to send all material to ReCAP. It is possible that leftover material may be shifted to Brewster in 2014. A reduced collection is maintained at Uris. All books are barcoded, however there may be many books in Voyager that can not be found on the shelf.
BS barcodes were used for collections of corporate reports and loose issues in boxes or envelopes deliverable only to Business.
On the annual (estimated) ReCAP quotas, Business has been allocated 15,000 volumes for collection growth off-set.
