Here's Berkeley's situation
1 FTE librarian (me)
1 FTE cataloger (Library Assistant V ... the BEST media cataloger in
1 FTE MRC operations supervisor (responsible for general admin of the
unit, including student employee training and sup, acquisition of
materials in the collection; collection maintenance, general public service)
About 10-12 student employees who staff the circulation desk.
MRC reports (because of various historical quirks) to the Head of
MRC collection includes about 25-30,000 titles on video or DVD and
about 3,000 spoken word audio titles.
Circulation last year was about 85,000 transactions (including both
in-house viewing and classroom use)
Hope this helps.
