Meet the Staff: Technical Services

Technical Services staff work behind the scenes to make sure you can find and access the information you need in the library. They order, renew, process and add books, videos, magazines, newspapers and more to the collection.  Without their efficient work, the daily newspaper wouldn’t make it to the shelf, the book you asked to be purchased would never come in and things would be shelved willy-nilly; and how would you find a thing?
