Since September 2010, I have been working with Collection Development, Scholarly Communications, Licensing, Acquisitions, Cataloging, and Preservation, and have found it very useful to think of these as a single management entity. This has encouraged me to find the best balance of all our efforts to ensure that we get content to our users in the most direct and efficient manner.
After consultation with my unit heads, Library ADMIN and Collections Council, I have formalized this arrangement. See a new document, Collection Services Defined, which is “filed” on the Collections Services staff-side web.
I welcome any questions or comments you may have about this new arrangement.
Best regards, Bernie
