R. Barbara Gitenstein Library Technical Services keep the collections vital and up to date by procuring new library materials and organizing them. These materials may be found easily and conveniently in the library’s electronic environment. The Acquisitions, Cataloging and Metadata, and Systems Departments work in tandem to provide essential library services in ways that are efficient, accurate, and innovative.
- Gitenstein Library Acquisitions Department orders, pays for, checks in, and processes incoming library materials.
- Gitenstein Library Cataloging and Metadata Department ensures access to library materials by cataloging them for inclusion in the Library’s discovery system. Cataloging and Metadata Services is a participant in the New Jersey/New York NACO Funnel project. The department’s policies and procedures can be found here.
- Gitenstein Library Systems Department provides electronic access to materials through the maintenance of the integrated library system (ILS) as well as other essential library-related technologies. The Systems Department keeps abreast of field-wide innovations, and serves as an intermediary between librarians/patrons and the technologies that power modern library operations.
