Libraries Annex Space Tracker (LAST)

The Libraries Annex needed a way to keep track of all open spaces that are created by weeding projects or expansions. In the past, staff would keep records of available space in Word, Excel and Access, but none of these programs allowed for easy retrieval of needed information. Being a storage facility, the Libraries Annex does not shelve items according to the Library of Congress classification scheme. Instead, materials of similar height are housed together on appropriately sized shelves to maximize the use of the available shelf space. Materials on each shelf are numbered consecutively, giving a fixed order and a unique "address" to every item stored in the Annex. This unique address is called an Annex Code.
