Stat. Codes & collectionHQ - The Perfect Pair
Did you know that Polaris statistical codes and collectionHQ play very well together?
Stat. codes can make weeding with collectionHQ more manageable by breaking your collection down into smaller parts, and reports such as the Collection Use Summary are much more meaningful once stat. codes have been widely implemented in your collection.
“But how do I retro my collection without pulling every item off the shelf?”
The easiest way to do this is:
“Now that I've implemented some stat. codes, how do I use them in collectionHQ?”
“But isn't collectionHQ more than just a weeding tool? How can I use stat. codes in collectionHQ to help analyze my collection?”
One of the reports where stat. codes are most useful is Collection Use Summary (found under Manage, Fiction, Collection Demand).
Rather than only breaking the collection down by hardcover and paperback fiction, this report breaks it down additionally by stat. code, which can be very useful in determining which sections of the library might need more attention than others.
