The Division of Technical Services. A Study of Its Present Organization and a Proposal for Change. Report on Staff Review and Final Recommendations on Reorganization.
Dorr, Ralze W.
This follow-up report combines results from a staff review process and final recommendations of the Acting Director for the reorganization of the Division of Technical Services at University of Louisville in Kentucky. The report is divided into two sections: "Report on Staff Review" and the "Final Recommendations on Reorganization by the Acting Director, Division of Technical Services." Staff input was solicited at three points in the planning process: in preparing detailed flowcharts prior to beginning the study of the existing organization; in providing information during the study of the flowcharts; and in pointing out perceived weaknesses in the existing organization prior to the drafting of alternative models for a new organization. The first section of the report groups issues raised by the staff in the following categories: collection development, acquisitions department, copy cataloging, bibliographic control, and serials department. In the second section the Acting Director recommends changes, additions and/or modifications to be made to the plan of reorganization presented in the original report. The recommendations are organized by collection development, acquisitions, cataloging, and serials. The submission of this report to the University Librarian concludes the planning phase of the study of the technical services organization begun in March 1983. (THC)
