TAMUCT Library Technical Services Staff
From left to right: Lisa Hopkins, Dawn Harris, Johnnie Porter, Amanda Smith, Vicky Eastes
The Technical Services Department consists of Acquisitions, Cataloging, Digital Resource Management, Repairs, and Archives. We are located on the 2nd floor of the University Library and our hours are 8-5 Monday-Friday.
Technical Services begins at the point an informational product is requested for purchase. 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 gift materials, Technical Service staff continuously evaluate the online catalog for accuracy and uniformity. Overall, the department strives to have a short turnaround time between an item’s receipt and its availability to library users.
The department consists of the Head of Technical Services, an Acquisitions & Cataloging Librarian, an Archivist, a Technical Services Specialist in charge of copy cataloging and course reserves, a part-time Technical Services Specialist responsible for e-reserves and assisting with acquisitions preorder verification and receiving, and part-time clerks who receive and process new materials. The Head of Technical Services will organize a Technical Services Committee to guide the department and make decisions when necessary.
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 to locate the resources that best fit their needs, regardless of their varied searching styles or the informational product’s format.
