Technical Services

James Edstrom, Coordinator, Professor

The general purposes of the Library's Technical Services Department reflect the Library's mission to provide curricular support for the programs offered by William Rainey Harper College. The Technical Services Department reflects this mission by:

  • The ordering and receiving of all materials to be added to Library's collections.
  • Organizing, cataloging, and physically processing these materials. This includes listing them in online databases such as the Library's online catalog, Find-It! Illinois (the Illinois State Library's statewide digital library), and OCLC (the international library cataloging database).
  • Maintaining, receiving, and processing subscriptions to appropriate scholarly and popular journals.
