Jan, We keep ALL catalogs for the current year. Basically, all 1999 =
catalogs have gone to the recycle center. This is how I do it: I have =
an entire filing cabinet for catalogs. I use large file folders and have =
them marked A-Z (a few companies have their own file: Films for the =
Humanities, PBS etc.) OK.
I have my high school student workers file for me. Sometimes they make a =
mistake--but it's good practice for them and not the end of the world =
for me. I can't imagine tossing them out. We get lots of patron =
requests--if I need to find something I can go to the cabinet and look =
for it.=20
Do I go through every catalog that comes across my desk? That depends =
on the season, I've been getting 25 a week lately--but I always look at =
the NEW section! :-)

Am interested in how you deal with the many catalogs you receive on a
regular basis - especially with companies who have catalog access on
their website. It seems like a full-time job trying to handle, file and
weed catalogs! How do you decide which catalogs to keep and how to file
them? I currently file "subject-specific" catalogs by subject and
shelve catalogs that cover a variety of subject areas by company name.
Am reluctant to throw paper catalogs away when that company may have
what I need, if it's an area that I've not ordered in before. Do you
USE catalogs? Do you index companies by the subjects they represent and
just call them when you need a video on a subject? Do you bookmark your
favorite companies? Do you just use Bowker's Complete Video Directory
or another source to find what you need? When you get a catalog, do you
immediately file it or do you look through it before filing it? Would
love ideas on ways to handle catalog mail more efficiently.
Thanks in advance!
