Technical Services and Acquisitions

The Technical Services and Acquisitions Department is responsible for securing acquisitions, handling cataloging and managing automation projects. The objective for this non-public service department is to provide and process the materials for research use and to maintain control of collections.

Acquisitions are secured through purchases from the Center’s budget and through gifts to the Center from generous donors. The technical processes of cataloging and classifying materials and physically preparing books and other items for the shelves are also handled in this department.

Automation projects which maintain control over various collections in the Library Division are produced and managed by Technical Service and Automation staff. In addition to the databases, checklists and card files are also maintained by the department.
