A Study of Technical Services Operations in the Libraries of the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Miller, Ronald; And Others
The technical service procedures of the State University of New York at Buffalo are described. This is part of a series of Technical Reports on Technical Services by the Five Associated University Libraries' (FAUL) Central Systems Group to view the internal operations of each library in comparison with those of other FAUL libraries. The three aspects of library technical processing that were viewed are: (1) acquisitions, (2) precataloging and verification and (3) cataloging. Excluded from this study are procedures dealing with non-book materials; periodicals and serials; circulation control; and public services, which include reference and interlibrary loan activities. No constructive suggestions for change are made. The textual section is followed by numerous charts of the formal structure of the organization and functional flow diagrams of the organization's activities. (MF)
