Library Inventory

The annual inventory of Physics Library material was done in May. The good news is that some of the lost and missing books from last year did show up.  However, there were still some rather large losses.  It is difficult to tell if the thief has stopped stealing from the collection, although the numbers are better than the past two years. Eighty five books have been identified as lost or missing.  Books that are missing two years in a row, or paid for by the patron who lost it, are considered to be lost. Fifty books which are now considered lost can be found at: []. Please check the list of lost books to see if there are any which should be replaced and let me know. In addition to the 50 lost books, there are 35 other books which are missing. Please also check the list of missing books in case you have any of these books. That list can be found at: []. Any help in recovering any of these titles will be greatly appreciated.
