Reducing user frustration over the failure to find a book in the library catalog, eliminating missing titles, and cleaning up other common database errors are tasks facing all libraries. Recently, the staff at Southern Polytechnic State University undertook a collection inventory using Palm Pilot technology. This article describes the one-year project and provides a detailed discussion of the procedures and equipment required to undertake this task. The experience at Southern Polytechnic State University suggests that library inventory is feasible and manageable.
