When doing inventory---I start as early as I can. It is 7 weeks to do end of the 
year, and I have started.  I also recruit volunteers.  I also recruit 8th graders 
who are able to follow details to help.  I have a sign that I put on the inventoried
shelf, and have the person who did that shelf sign it. This way if there becomes a 
pattern of problems, it is easier to find where they worked and go back and 

Already have a talk with your principal(s) about when locker/desk/cubbie clean out 
will be, when ALL ITEMS MUST be back, I have a library book date and a textbook 
date.  The more time between having to fill out lost slips and check in will help 

The order in which I do inventory helps me to still be able to provide services 
until close to the end.  Also, note: I am at two middle schools, and am in the 
middle of multiple Battle of the Book competitions and end-of-the-year projects. So 
days inventory is only 1hour, some days it is 5-8 hours.  

Extra textbooks
Older Magazines (not the current one on the front shelves)
Currently out materials

I have set the checkin mode to Inventory Bookdrop. This way all the books that are 
coming in are inventoried and checked in at the same time. My system (Alexandria) 
does not care if an item is inventoried more than once.

 Also, just know, that I figure the end-of-the year is when I put in the most 
overtime. It is what the classroom teachers are doing also, so it is just part of 
the system. Don't book any HEAVY family/friend obligations so that you don't get 
stressed. Remember the good things: talks with students, WHAT you HAVE 
accomplished.  Do the nutritious food, water, exercise, sleep thing.  And, summer 
is coming.
