Cataloging, Collections and Technical Services
This quarter we found that most of the items the library has out on loan remained out as most patrons still have not returned to work, thus have no convenient way to ship items back to us. Those that have come back (primarily P.E. Exam study materials) were on "hold" by other patrons so are getting turned around almost immediately. In addition to existing collections we acquired and cataloged 15 new P.E. Exam study items listed as "required" by NCEES. Another 23 "supplemental" items were ordered.
