UPDATE: Maintaining the status of each of the projects has become an overwhelming burden for us Librarians. Therefore, we have put the issue on the table for the Librarians to discuss and decide on the future of the whole thing. That "table" is LOADED so I can't promise when a resolution/decision will be made. Until then feel free to work on any of the items and, if if pleases you, post to that group. We won't be updating the status of the separate projects, though.
Thanks for your interest.
BC and the Librarians (considering forming a Shelfari rock group by that name!)
There are so many things we can do to clean up the Shelfari catalog, that it can be overwhelming. We have established a new group for the purpose of listing some projects that can move us toward specific areas of focus in that effort.
The group is named "Catalog Clean-up Special Projects" and can be found here - http://www.shelfari.com/groups/63223/about .
Shelfari Librarians will list "special projects" on this group and define what is needed for those projects. Each project will be one thread
If you wish to help out on a specific project, just reply to that thread with your intention to do a specific task as listed on the project thread.
We are bastardizing the group concept to try for some project management activities: 1) List the work; 2) Identify participants in the work; 3) track status of the work. It is not a discussion group. Any questions or discussions about the work, itself, should be posted on this, the Shelfari Librarian & Editors group.
If you wish to create a special project that isn't (yet) available on this group, send me a note and we'll get it done. Only Librarians should post new threads to this group.
Thanks so much for your willingness to help clean up the catalog and your enthusiasm for these projects!
