I would be interested to know how many school librarians do a full stock-take each year? While I understand the value of the exercise, I worry about the huge amount of time dedicated to this annual process. Last year I broke with tradition and only did half the fiction, which I am quite sure was representative of the general stock loaned. We do have a security system so I am not sure what extra measures we could implement if we found the figures worrying, which fortunately, they are not. What do you do?
