I am working in a CBSE School library. In our library storeroom approximately 3000 specimen textbooks are lying in the floor. What will we do with such a large amount of specimen text books?
If I accessioned such a large amount of textbooks in the school library? Can I face any difficulties from CBSE whenever they came in the school for inspection?
Have you any other option for such a large amount of books ?
Waiting for your valuable reply.
Well! more or less all the CBSE affiliated school libraries are having same issue.
We have made a policy for our school library is to keep only recent 3 years specimen copies. beyond that we discarded. so in the beginning of an academic year we remove the specimen copies of a year.
The discarded books can be used in many purpose. Librarian should discuss and take prior approval from the concerned authority(ies).
No, We can't accessioning of specimen books in accession register according to CBSE. We can make a separate register for record of specimen copies and maintain separately
