Discovery Services


The mission of the Discovery Services Department is to provide access to materials in all formats, ensure accuracy of the content of the data in the bibliographic and holdings records within our online public access catalog, physically process materials to be shelved, send materials to the commercial bindery, and maintain the records for inventory in the storage facility. Typical activities for the department include managing electronic journal access, creating call number labels, withdrawing materials, editing bibliographic and holdings records, transferring materials to storage, processing rush materials, and sending materials to a commercial bindery.
