Hello everyone,

A lot of things are changing in the Technical Services department, and we want to keep you informed of our progress.  Here’s a highlight of some of the major transitions you will be seeing from us this fiscal year:

  • The approval plan will now arrive fully cataloged and will no longer be displayed in technical services.  With this change, the plan will now be referred to as shelf-ready approval.  Check our blog on a weekly basis for a listing of all items arriving on the shelf-ready approval plan.
  • Firm order selection will be submitted through Gobi.  Stay tuned to the library listserv for upcoming training dates, or contact Lindsay Barnett with specific questions.
  • Visit our LibGuide for updates, Gobi tutorials, and other useful information about Collection Development.

As always, feel free to contact us directly at (843)953-8009 with any questions or concerns.  We look forward to hearing from you!
