Cataloging, Collections and Technical Services
This quarter a new collection of Historical Virginia State Maps was added to the VDOT Library Digital Collections site. Summer interns Allie Cognata and Ellie Quick began the scanning for a forthcoming collection of Historical Road and Bridge Standards to be added as well. Changes have been made to the agency's Skillsoft Books collection holdings and the library began discussions with Skillsoft representatives to address the need for MARC records to reflect these changes in their collections. We hope to be able to make the necessary updates to the library catalog in the coming quarter to accurately reflect current holdings.
