Welcome to Technical Services

 

The Technical Services Department consists of Acquisitions, Cataloging, Digital Resource Management, Repairs, and Archives.  We are located in Room 24 of the Fairway Building and our hours are 8-5 Monday-Friday.  

Technical Services begins at the point that an informational product is requested for purchase by the library. The material is purchased, received, cataloged, processed, and made available to users via the library’s online catalog and the library webpage. In addition to the cataloging of new and older materials. Technical Service staff continuously evaluate the online catalog for accuracy and uniformity. Overall, the department strives to have a very short turnaround time between an item’s receipt and its availability to library users.

The department consists of a Technical Services Coordinator, a Cataloging & Acquisitions Librarian, a Technical Services Specialist, a part-time Cataloging Librarian, and part-time clerks.  Clerks receive and process new materials. The Technical Services Coordinator will organize a Technical Services Committee to guide the department and make decisions when necessary. 

 

 

Mission

The mission of the Technical Services staff is to provide catalog records that adequately describe each item in the library’s collection and to supply multiple access points for each to enable all users can locate the resources that best fit their needs, regardless of their varied searching styles or the informational product’s format.
