Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group

Technical services, like any other department in a library, is faced with the need to increase efficiencies so that it can purchase and catalog material as fast as possible, in order to meet the needs of today’s users. Some technical services departments across the United States have embraced these efficiencies by implementing services such as: Patron Driven Acquisitions, Group wide License Negation, and Rapid Cataloging in order to meet the changing needs of the library. Please join us at the ALCTS Creative Ideas in Technical Services Discussion Group as we discuss how these and other efficiencies have been implemented in Technical Service Departments around the United States.
