Cataloguing backlogs!

As promised, a discussion on cataloguing backlogs - and what cataloguing department can say they haven't got one, or they've never had one?!

And, what's in a name? What is a "backlog"? Does it change its spots if it's called a "throughput", or a "work in progress"?

What is definite is that if you have one you're sure to know about it, and if you don't acknowledge it, public services / reader services staff will be sure to let you know! The other certainty is that if you don't take positive action, your backlog will never diminsh! If you want some courage to grab the bull by the horns, give this true life story a read!

Hoping this helps you and your backlog!
