Collection out of whack? Need some balance?
We’ve all been there.

Occasionally patrons do secret five-finger censoring of certain titles or subjects, or never return the book that everyone needs for that seventh-grade English class. Sometimes we take over a collection and simply want to know where to start. However we get there, from time-to-time, our collections get out of balance or are missing key titles or even sections.
