Inventorying a library’s collection is something that most libraries do at some time. This listen-and-learn session was designed to show the experience of two different libraries in conducting an inventory. The inventory in the first library was done for the first time in thirty years, because the physical collections of the library were finally in one place, permitting an inventory to be done fairly easily. The inventory in the second library was done for the fourth time in a biennial process. The process in these two libraries was presented so that attendees could determine what part of the methods presented might be applicable to their own situation.
