Abstract

Physical stock verification of library books is aimed at maintenance and rectification of books and their records, identifying missing books, weeding-out and writing-off of books, among other things. The authors have made an effort to share their experiences and recommend a model strategy for stock taking in publicly financed Indian libraries using their experience at the Central Library at Maulana Azad National Urdu University in Hyderabad.
