summary
Summary
  • To manage growth we:
    • Created a distributed network of system staff to ease system library required copy cataloging
    • Created a website to facilitate system library requests for bib records for new purchases
    • Shifted staff duties around to help Acquisitions accommodate growth of the materials budget
    • Implemented EDI ordering and processing
    • Streamlined physical processing with a single wrap-around spine label that serves a myriad of purposes.
