"Please do not reshelve" signs are frequently seen in libraries. Why? Libraries often make purchase decisions based on which books are checked out, but that metric misses the value of books & journals that are used for quick reference or other purposes without being checked out. By not reshelving items, you are allowing librarians the opportunity to collect valuable data about in-library use. That data assists in funding and collection development decision-making.
