The Technical Services Division is responsible for the physical preparation of books and other materials and their addition to the catalog. Every item which you check out must be marked, labeled, stamped, and bar-coded. A record for the item must be placed in the on-line catalog - and the better records (with more information on which to search) take more time to prepare. When these items are worn out, missing, or out of date - the records must be removed from the catalog. Technical Services handles over 10,000 items per year.
Janell Farris is head of the Technical Services Division. She is assisted by Wanda Thompson and Barbara Babineaux.
