Annual Report 2011: Major Activities in Technical Services

As a continuation of our series on our 2011 Annual Report, please see a description of major activities in technical services:

  • Fiscal Year 2010 was a transitional year in Mudd Library Technical Services, with Christie Peterson and Maureen Callahan hired in September and February respectively to fill open positions and with Lynn Durgin taking and returning from family leave.
  • April marked the first time that all Mudd Library Technical Services positions were filled with full-time staff members since 2008. A search for an SCAII to assist with the ACLU processing project also began in late spring 2011.
  • Despite staffing issues, well over 1,000 linear feet was processed and described with online records and finding aids in FY2011, with another 1,123 linear feet addressed by the ACLU processing project that will be available by the end of FY2012.

Stay tuned for further discussion of our 2011 work involving processing, accessioning, digital projects, records management, collection development, exhibitions, and more.
