3. Duplication of Gov Docs. Lists of duplicate items between Scott Gov, and Scott and Steacie were generated last year when we did the Scott Gov move. I am working with Amanda and Leila to identify what can be discarded, what can be merged, and which location to merge the items to.

4. Theses. We are preparing to assign accession numbers and label the remainder of the theses stored on the first floor and then will relocate them to HNES-STOR.

5. Gifts. I sent about 700 books that we will not retain to the Books for Africa drive.
