Division of Scholarly Resources and Research Services
Cataloging and Metadata Department

The Cataloging and Metadata Department supports the academic programs of the University by organizing, describing, and providing physical processing for the books, journals, electronic resources, sound and video recordings, microforms, maps, and other material purchased or received by the library system. Five librarians and fifteen support staff catalog approximately 25,000 titles per year in compliance with national standards of bibliographic control and in keeping with established Cataloging Priorities. The department works with Acquisitions to load e-resource packages, which add thousands of records to the library catalog each year. Original record contributions to OCLC, an international bibliographic database, number 5,000 annually. The department participates in international cooperative cataloging programs including CONSER, BIBCO, NACO, SACO, and AGRICOLA. Three units - Copy Cataloging, Contributed Cataloging, and Authorities and Metadata Quality - and the Principal Serials Cataloger collaborate to create efficient workflows and apply the latest technologies in order to meet user needs.
