 +===How To Label Hackable Stuff and Materials===
 +
 +MHV welcomes donations of hackable items and useable materials.
 +
 +Due to our limited storage space, such items need to be used or reserved quickly or moved on to a [[http://​images.canberratimes.com.au/​2012/​11/​10/​3786008/​ss-artwide-waste-20121110202143965942-620x349.jpg|"​better place"​]]. ​ Please help keep our supply of hackable items moving by labeling items coming into the Space. If you see an unlabeled item in the Space, please label it!

 +
 +==Labeling Newly Arrived Gear and Materials==
 +
 +You will find boxes of labels and these instructions in each area of the Space. When you bring new stuff in (or find stuff without a label), please spend a few minutes creating a label and attaching it to each piece of gear or bundle of materials:
 +
 +1. Fill-in label when an item first comes to the space.
 +
 +2. Attach label to item with string or sticky tape (see diagram). If there are no
 +labels in the box, {{:​howto:​mhvlabelspage.png?​linkonly|print some more}}.
 +
 +3. Place item in an appropriate area or shelf with label visible.
 +
 +4. Let people know about the item via the mailing list or [[https://​www.facebook.com/​groups/​357947732276/​|Facebook]].
 +
 +==Reserving an Item==
 +
 +Stuff is there to be used and everyone is encouraged to hack the available items.
 +
 +1. If you want an item for your project, fill-in your name on the label and date it.
 +
 +2. When you start using the item, replace the label with your own "in use by ......"​ label
 +
 +3. If you decide you no longer want an item, re-label it.
 +
 +==Disposing of Labeled Items==
 +
 +1. During MHV working bees, items that were labeled or reserved more than 
 +two months ago (and have not been used) may be taken to Revolve or the tip.
 +
 +2. Any unlabeled items discovered during a Working Bee or at any other time may be either labeled or disposed of - at the discretion of the person who finds it.
