Transforming Technical Services, Opening Knowledge for the Community : A VIU Technical Services Sixer
MetadataShow full item record
Presentation from the annual Vancouver Island Library Staff Conference (April 29 2016, Victoria). From the published schedule: Over the past few years VIU has been developing new work and skills in their technical services department, distributing new responsibilities among staff, and innovating and renovating our workflows to respond to what they’re seeing as the “new” technical services. Long gone are the days of backlogs in the tech services room. The space has long since been re-purposed, and the shelves replaced by a single book truck. The new projects we’ve been pursuing are increasingly technical in a different way, while still making use of the valuable knowledge and skills of our staff. These include: An ebook access verification tool; Digital preservation workflows; Recruitment and processing of local scholar content for the IR; Assorted non-text digital endeavours. Join the technical services team as they share their perspectives and experiences with these projects, past, present, and future.
