The FY 2012 Collection Services Annual Report is now Available

I am pleased to announce the FY 2012 Collection Services Annual Report is now available.

This report reflects work performed by the Collection Services Council, the Collections Budget Group, the E-Book Advisory Group, the Scholarly Communication Advisory Group, and the staff who work in Acquisitions, Cataloging, Collections Analysis, Licensing, and Preservation.

If you do not have time to read the entire report, I would urge you to at least read through the Highlights section. The highlights have been arranged by subject to make visible the major themes that were pursued in FY12. As you will see, last year was a very busy and productive year for Collection Services. This is a good time for us to step back and recognize all that we have accomplished together.

Most importantly, I offer my sincere thanks to everyone who works in Collections Services and to the Library as a whole for your dedication to the Library. Your efforts have allowed us to provide our patrons with outstanding collections and services under very difficult staffing and financial conditions. All of us in Collections Services look forward to serving the Library and our patrons in FY13.

–Bernie Hurley, Director of Collection Services
