*Abstract: The functions of Technical Services have evolved as economics and technology continuously affect libraries. This study investigates how the area of Technical Services in large research university libraries are adapting to support the changing roles of academic libraries. The members of the ALCTS Technical Services Directors of Large Research Libraries Interest Group from the 25 university libraries were contacted for this study, and 19 of 25 invitees completed an hour-long interview. This study identifies various new and emerging TS functions and a number of the factors that greatly impact TS areas both now and in the near future. This research also points out various desirable skills needed by Technical Services personnel.

Context statement:  Reaching the point of least description 

Video as background ‘reading’:  http://www.catalogingfutures.com/catalogingfutures/full-text-searching/

Many of us tech services administrator types operate under the hope that at some point in the future we'll be able to invest less in cataloging textual resources than we currently do because the full text of those resources will be better integrated into our search tools, thus making some or all of the contents of the catalog records for those resources redundant. A corollary to that hope is that when this point is reached we'll be able to divert cataloger time to non-textual resources, which will likely continue to benefit from having textual surrogates accompany them to help people find them.

In an era of cooperation and consortia, could we take a further leap by consolidating cataloging services? If we're already doing this, can we share with each other our successes and pitfalls?  Or if we're not, what's stopping us?  What's holding us back?

For those of us around the table or around the room, do you subscribe to these hopes? Would you recast them in any way? What are the inhibitors and facilitators for reaching the "point of least description" for textual resources? Have we already reached that point and we missed it? If we're not there yet, what can we do now to prepare?
