Copy Cataloging Unit

Annual Report 2009/2010



FY2010 has been a quieter year than the past few with no major changes in workflow or personnel. The unit has continued adjusting to the loss of one full-time position. Our DLC/PCC level records are still being cataloged by two very able student assistants (Aamer Shareef and Gisselle Rosa). During FY2010 the unit employed on average 7 student assistants during the fall and spring semesters. We have begun to explore new ways in which we can utilize the abilities of our student assistants who have for years been integral to the unit’s work. During FY2010, student assistants began to help Authorities and Database Maintenance (with a great deal of help from Gerald Langford) by make corrections to headings in the catalog, accelerating the pace of the work considerably. Students searched the vast majority of the new material coming into the department.

The unit cataloged about the same number of titles in FY2010 as in FY2009. A total of 13,136 new titles were catalogedr, including 11,088 monographs, 92 serials, 136 sound discs, 1,013 videos (VHS & DVD) and 779 electronic theses and dissertations. In addition, the unit reclassed 594 titles.

 

Below are some of the unit’s activities in FY2010:
