Description

The Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust (EAST) conducted a Validation Study to determine the likelihood that materials retained by EAST Retention Partner libraries will both be available when needed and in adequate condition to be used. Over the course of 10 weeks in the winter of 2016, each of 40 retention partner libraries confirmed the presence (or absence) of 6,000 items, using a homegrown tool built with Google App Script to interact with collection data. This talk will reflect on the outcomes of the study and the use of Google App Script to manage the project.
