I’m pleased to say that since the service went live in August 2011, the Catalog Department has been able to keep up with the many tracing requests that come in each week. As a result, we have enhanced both the BadCat tracing form and the Tracing Policy.
The form has been updated to include a 7th scenario for tracing urgently needed items, namely those not yet cataloged which have a Millennium order record received date 6 months prior to the current date. The form also now includes a field to include the Millennium order record received date. Both changes are reflected in the revised policy document which can be found either from the BadCat tracing form, or via the Catalog Department’s website.

Thanks very much to Robert Smith, Michael Meacham, and Lisa Weber for working to get the web and procedural changes into place.
