Zimmerman teamed up with associate University librarian Fern Brody to order five new graduate resource books and two eBooks for the Alldred Collection in the Cup & Chaucer Cafe on the ground floor.

...
Brody has also ordered two GRE practice eBooks that students can find on PittCat+.
Brody said the books are on standing order, so the library will receive immediate shipment when the publisher comes out with new editions each year.
While Hillman Library carries a few older editions of graduate school resource books, Brody said that Hillman will be sure to carry the most up-to-date resource books in one location.
...
Prior to the relocation, Brody said the books were scattered throughout the library.
"We had some [review books], but sporadically, and they weren't always the most up-to-date," she said.

In a previous article in The Pitt News, Fern Brody, the associate University librarian who works under Rush Miller, director of the University Library System, said that an inventory of Hillman Library has never been performed because it would be too massive a project. Based on their comments, Penn State and WVU library officials seem to agree.

Miller and Brody declined comment on this story.

Fern Brody, the associate University librarian who works under Rush Miller, director of the University Library System, said that she did not have an estimate of the number of books actually missing from the library that are unreported.

The University does not keep a running tally of the books in the Hillman Library's collection, either, Brody said.
"Yeah, I don't know how many books there are in Hillman," she said.
Brody mentioned that she hopes to move away from providing tallies for the individual libraries' materials.
...
Brody said 306 employees should fill out the same forms as the lending desk.
"They should be doing that, and it must have dropped off," Brody said.
...
Brody said that there were some problems in the current protocol for handling alerts of the library's sensors.
"They should be stopping people. Well, the person at the desk should be stopping," Brody said.
"Now if the person runs out the door, we have the building person, a building supervisor. The person at the desk can try to either get somebody that's working with them to go out and, of course, we try to call somebody," she said.
...
Brody explained that McLeod "is responsible for lending, interlibrary loan and the media services area, as well as the off-site storage," and Paul Beck, the Room 306 staff supervisor who reports to McLeod, "is responsible for the Hillman stacks, directly."
...
But, Brody said, "I would guess I'm in charge of the procedures."
Ultimately, Brody says the ULS does not have an estimate of how many books are missing from Hillman Library, nor do the staff members know how many books are housed in the library.
Brody said, "We haven't done an inventory of Hillman Library. Some other departmental libraries have done that over different times. But at Hillman we haven't. So there's not a check. We're not going to be saying, 'Here was the count at the beginning, here was the count at the end.'"
When asked why an inventory of Hillman hadn't been performed, Brody stated, "The work.
...
Telling statement at the end by Brody, "It's really kind of a massive project."
That's why we call it work Brody.
