             Technical Services Annual Report 2006/2007

     (Acquisitions, Cataloging, Collection Development, Serials)
       Compiled by Head of Technical Services Debbi Dinkins


Acquisitions: $646,982.47 was spent on library resources (including
binding, shipping, etc.) for all libraries. $58,803.89 of the total spent
came from gift funds, including the income generated from the Daphne
Brownell endowment and the S. Elizabeth Stetson endowment, and from
Rinker and book sale funds. Journal subscriptions used 36.45% of the
budget, web databases used 28.85%, and books used 23.54%. See
Appendix B and C for details.

Cataloging: 6,932 new titles in all formats (excluding Government
Documents) were added to the collections, including 1,362 electronic
books. 3,564 Government Documents titles were added. See Appendix
D for details.

Withdrawals and Collection Evaluation: Numerous withdrawals and
collection evaluation projects were conducted this fiscal year, resulting in
negative growth for the library’s overall collection. 7,368 book volumes
and 973 journal volumes were weeded, as well as over 50,000 microform

Two New Special Collections: The papers of E. Clay Shaw, Jr. include a
small collection of cataloged books. The M. Jean Greenlaw collection
includes first edition children’s books.

Book Sales: We continued the online book store through ABE and added
a few sales through Amazon. During 2006/07, we deposited $3,063.71
from ABE sales. This extra income continued to supplement the library’s
computer resources budget.

Inventory Project: With the help of student assistants, Catalog Librarian
Laura Kirkland continued an inventory project of the circulating collection,
beginning with the literature section (P classification). As a result,
reinstatements of previously lost books increased by 30%.

I. Challenges and Issues

      A. Budget Stabilization Program

      We continued to operate with a reduced acquisitions budget. The University
      restored $10,000 to the library materials fund and most of that amount was spent
      on web databases. We are hopeful that $40,000 or more will be restored to the
      acquisitions budget next fiscal year, which will match 2001/2002 purchasing

      B. Physical Space in Periodicals

      Limited space for paper and bound journals and microform journals is an
      immediate issue. Resolution of this issue is still one of the five-year goals of the
      department and Dinkins, Periodicals Supervisor Linda Grooms and Library
      Director Betty Johnson will continue to work on a periodicals retention project
      addressing this issue. The library acquired access to JSTOR through a Law
      School Library subscription in the spring of 2007. JSTOR will be a factor in
      evaluation of the periodicals in the basement, which is scheduled to begin next
      fiscal year.

      C. Cataloging Workload

      We continue to operate with only one full-time cataloger and two part-time copy
      catalogers for all collections, excluding Government Documents. There is a
      greater demand for librarian-level cataloging with the need to catalog more and
      more special collections items, electronic books, scores and recordings.
      Acquisition of these four formats increased this fiscal year. Dinkins and Kirkland
      continue to hope for the addition of a librarian to help with the cataloging

      D. Catalog Web Interface

      The library needs to move to a later version of web interface for our catalog. Our
      current version, Webcat, is no longer being developed or enhanced by Sirsi.

      E. Personnel Changes

      Angela Story joined the department early in the fiscal year as the new
      Government Documents Specialist.

II. Five-Year Goals, 2007/2008 – 2011/2012

      A. Periodicals Space

      Dinkins, Grooms, and Johnson will continue work on the periodicals retention
      project. This project is labor-intensive because each title must be considered
      independently. We will expand the project in 2007/2008 to include evaluation of
      microforms. Aspects for each title are considered, such as use, online
      availability, and the needs of the interested academic departments. Shifting in
                                                        Technical Services Annual Report 2006/2007
      the periodicals area of the main floor of the library will be completed in
      2007/2008. Periodicals shelf space should become a less critical issue as we
      rely more and more on online access to journals.

      B. Cataloging Workload

      Dinkins and Kirkland, with the help of the Cataloging Team, will continue to
      monitor and streamline the cataloging workload and explore the possibility of
      adding a librarian to catalog.

      C. Sirsi Java Client Implementation

      Sirsi users in Technical Services will continue to convert to the Java Client
      interface for Workflows. Hopefully, the Circulation department will start a
      conversion to the Java Client in 2007/2008.

      D. Zero Growth in Circulating Book Collection

      Technical Services librarians and staff will continue to evaluate the circulating
      book collection and withdraw obsolete and outdated books. In 2006/2007, we
      added 3,547 volumes to the circulating collection and withdrew 2,012. With a bit
      more effort and with the cooperation of public services librarians, we will try to
      attain a short-term goal of zero growth for the circulating collection.

      E. Authority Project

      Kirkland, with the help of Technical Services Specialist Geri Littler, will continue
      to verify or correct authority records brought into Sirsi during the batch load in
      1997. Thousands of these records need evaluation.

III/IV. Progress 2006/2007 and Assessment

      Agenda items for 2006/2007, as stated in the department’s last annual report, as
      well as assessment of those items are listed below.

      A. Periodicals Space

      Dinkins, Grooms and Johnson continue to work through the periodicals
      collection. We completed one phase of the project this fiscal year by evaluating
      all titles available in paper and available online through two major aggregators or
      through a dedicated online subscription. Grooms and Conservation Specialist
      Pat Lopez began a shifting project on the main floor of the library and will finish
      next fiscal year. Growth space will be more apparent after the shifting project is

      For next year’s agenda, we will concentrate on evaluating periodicals in
      microform format and periodicals in the basement that duplicate online access
      through JSTOR.

                                                        Technical Services Annual Report 2006/2007
B. Cataloging Load and Workflow

Cataloging load for the department is shifting from regular circulating and
reference book cataloging to “specialty” cataloging, such as for electronic books
and for units of special collections. Consequently, this specialty cataloging
requires a librarian to not only catalog the items but to initially craft a plan of
approach to handle the collection as a whole, considering processing concerns,
storage, and space availability. We cataloged a much higher number of
electronic books and special collection items this year and that trend will probably
continue for electronic formats. The workload will require another trained
librarian to handle this level of cataloging. As an agenda item for next fiscal year,
Dinkins and Kirkland will continue to monitor the workload and collect evidence to
build a strong case for the addition of another catalog librarian.

C. Book Sales and Other Revenue

We held one book sale event in the fall of 2006. We continue book sales online
through ABE and we added a few sales through Amazon. For 2007/2008, we will
hold one book sale event in the fall and continue online sales.

D. Authority Control

We continued to maintain authority control with current cataloging and made
progress in correction of batch loaded headings. Kirkland and Littler corrected
and/or updated 15,666 authority headings and added 13,327 authorized records.
This project continues in 2007/2008.

E. Sirsi Java Client

Most of technical services personnel have converted to the Sirsi Java Client
interface. Two staff members will be converted in 2007/2008. Also, Dinkins will
work with Associate Director Sue Ryan and Circulating Supervisor Cathy Ervin to
convert circulation staff members and the checkout computers to the Java Client.

F. Government Documents

Angela Story joined the staff as the Government Documents Specialist in June.
She has been trained in cataloging policies and procedures and is covering her
responsibilities with very little guidance or supervision.

G. Collection Evaluation

Through collection evaluation, we withdrew only 2,012 volumes from the
circulating collection this year, a decrease from levels of the last two years. We
made a concerted effort to reach the 3,000-volume goal in the summer and fall
semesters, but had to suspend regular evaluation activities to cover withdrawal of
over 5,000 volumes from the reference collection as part of Public Services’
Reference Evaluation project. For next fiscal year, we again set the goal of
withdrawing 3,000 volumes from the circulating collection as part of collection
evaluation and in an effort to reach zero growth for the circulating collection.

V.   Agenda 2007/2008

     A. Periodicals Space

     Continue periodicals retention project. Concentrate on periodicals in microform
     format and periodicals in the basement that duplicate online access through

     B. Cataloging Load and Workflow

     Continue to evaluate cataloging load and look for ways to streamline processes.
     Collect evidence to support the need for another catalog librarian.

     C. Book Sales and Other Revenue

     Hold at least one book sale event in fall. Continue online book sale efforts.

     D. Authority Control

     Continue to maintain authority control with current cataloging and make progress
     in correction of batch loaded headings.

     E. Sirsi

     Complete Java Client conversion in Technical Services by end of May 2008.
     Work with Circulation department to convert computers to Java Client.

     Upgrade Sirsi software from Unicorn 2003.1.4 to GL 3.1 in July and August. The
     upgrade will include a Solaris software upgrade from Solaris 8 to Solaris 10.

     F. Collection Evaluation

     Evaluate more volumes from the circulating collection as part of the collection
     evaluation project. Withdraw at least 3,000 circulating volumes to approach zero
     growth for this collection.

     G. Cross Training with Electronic Services Librarian

     Work with Electronic Services Librarian Rob Lenholt to understand image
     building for the public computers. Train Lenholt on Sirsi maintenance, beginning
     with Sirsi upgrade to GL 3.1 in July and August 2007.

VI.     Periodicals Report
        (reported by Linda Grooms)

                                 Departmental Activities

My weekly meetings with the Library Director and Head of Technical Services, to
determine the archival retention policy for each of our periodical titles, continued through
most of the fiscal year but were temporarily suspended to give me a chance to implement
the decisions made to date. We withdrew over 900 bound volumes and thousands of
loose issues, which were offered for sale to back issue vendors, resulting in sales
amounting to $2,670.00. Those items not sold were then offered to other libraries on an
exchange list. Another result of this archival retention review was the transfer back to our
Government Documents department of 41 titles that were being housed in the periodicals

After our recent round of archival retention reviews, we began shifting the periodicals
collection on the main floor (all periodicals published since the beginning of 1984),
leaving five years of growth space for those titles we are still binding. We completed
approximately one-half of the shift before the Spring 2007 semester concluded and
expect to finish the shift this Fall, when we again have student help.

We continue to participate in the Backserv exchange program. This year we received 47
items from 20 libraries. We provided 979 items (including 468 rolls of microfilm) to 61
requesting libraries. Twenty four volumes were completed, bound and added to our
permanent collection, as a result of our participation in this program.

After a review of our binding workflow, I designed an Access database to organize the
notes needed to process volumes for binding and to generate reports. We now have an
efficient way to create a list of issues to be pulled for binding, a list of volumes at the
bindery for our Public Services department, and a list of issues to be offered on exchange
