Lost and Found in Delivery

SCLS Delivery maintains a list of items reported lost or found within the Wisconsin Libraries' Delivery Network.  The list is available as a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet.  It is updated as items are added or removed, and at the beginning of each month.

To add items to the list, please send the item information using the lost and found list item submission form.  Please include as many of the following pieces of information as you have available:

  • item format
  • call number
  • author
  • title
  • barcode number
  • owning library
  • additional notes

Submitted items will be added to the spreadsheet and a notice with the item information will be posted on the SCLS Delivery Service blog. Posts from March 2007 onward can be viewed in the blog archive.

Items not found or claimed are automatically removed from the list after six months.

Libraries are encouraged to periodically check their shelves to see if "lost" materials have been shelved at their library by mistake. If you find any lost items, please send them directly to the owning library.  If a lost item has been returned to you please notify us to have it removed from the list.

Questions about the list or the submission procedure can be directed to Tim Drexler.

Deep work: rules for focused success in a distracted world BF 323.D5 N49 2016 Cal Newport 33105006753840 North Dakota State Librar Book April 20, 2018
This item shipped to UW-Parkside (GZP) though we didn't request it. Inside was paperwork belonging to Milwaukee Area Technical College (for ILL 186725607) to be shipped to Minitex. I'm assuming the book needs to go back to North Dakota State, but I wasn't sure if one of the libraries in Wisconsin borrowed this or not.

We borrowed this book to the Cross Plains Public Library and it was due in April. The patron from that library stated she returned it to another library but did not know which one. As of 6/12/18, Milwaukee Area Technical College has yet to receive the book back. Please check to make sure the book was not returned to any of your libraries. Thank You!

A Wrinkle in Time WRI 2018 version 33019007049555 Beaver Dam Community Library Book September 14, 2018
This was supposedly returned to Waupun Public Library by a patron on September 4, 2018. It usually does not take this long to get back, so it might be lost.
