Cataloging


The Cataloging Department is responsible for the metadata (description) of all Library materials, both owned and accessed electronically. Most of this metadata is downloaded from OCLC (Online Computer Library Center)--a database of over 60 million records. The records are then verified and edited to match the item. Cataloged materials are barcoded, bookplated and labeled. Cataloging also handles the repair and binding of books, as well as transfers and withdrawls.

Interlibrary Loan

E-Z Borrow is also available for our college community to supply books-only from Pennsylvania-region libraries. Community patrons are encouraged to review "Books & More" and "Journal Finder" on the Library home page before proceeding with EZB and ILL requests. In addition, every effort is made to quickly provide materials to outside libraries via US mail, fax, Ariel and UPS. Supplied materials should complement but not duplicate the requestor's collection. See the Interlibrary Loan web page for policies and ordering information.
