Floating collections are a good way to put items in your collection where they are needed most. However, directing items to the right location often requires extensive and time-consuming re-balancing. This is especially true in this time of COVID.
Making sure your library’s collection is intelligently distributed among your locations is key to avoiding wasted resources, whether that’s items pooling where they’re not needed, or staff time spent calculating the logistics of re-balancing or risking the health of staff by handling unnecessary paper.
