Department: Technical Services - (919) 530- 6430
The Technical Services Department consists of Acquisitions and Cataloging sections.
This section selects and acquires
all materials for the university libraries excluding the Law Library
and the SLIS Library. Pre-order searching, processing books to
deliver to cataloging, communication with faculty, staff, and
students, and evaluation of the collection are other vital responsibilities
of the area.
This section processes all types of materials for the various
collections within the building. These materials are classified
with the Library of Congress Classification System.
Currently, the periodicals are not classified but are arranged
in alphabetical order by title and shelved in the Serials Section.
The Cataloging section also maintains the online public access
catalog using the Sirsi System. Records are added to the local database
by uploading records via the OCLC PRISM Service bibliographic
transfer and by inputting records directly using Sirsi WorkFlows.
