Resource Management

The Resources Managment area is made up of the traditional Monographs and Serials units of a library.   The Monographs unit is responsible for the ordering, receiving, invoice-processing, cataloging, and physical processing of monographs for the Library's collections. Webster's Third New International Dictionary of the English Language, Unabridged  (1981) defines a monograph as "a learned, detailed, thoroughly documented treatise covering exhaustively a small area of a field of learning."  However, our definition is somewhat broader.  We use the word to mean "one-time purchases."  The Serials unit handles periodicals, standing orders for books in series, and other continuations.

The goal of Resources Management area is to provide cost-effective and timely access to materials ordered Items that have been ordered are listed in the Library's online catalog Austin with a status of "on order." Students and staff may recommend book purchases by filling out the online form.

For information on budgets and selection, including department librarian liaisons, see Collection Development.

Submitting Departmental Book Order Requests

All departmental book requests must come through the department's library representative using GOBI

Once the new books and audiovisual materials are received, their status in their Felix Online Catalog records change to "In Processing," and they are cataloged.  A full record for each item is created and entered into the Austin catalog.  Great efforts are made to provide multiple access points to materials, such as variant titles, authors, subjects, and call numbers, making the materials easier to find in Austin. Once cataloged, the materials are physically processed in preparation for shelving and use by library patrons.  

Requests to rush process an item will be honored when they are based on specific and immediate curricular requirements of faculty or students. To request the rush processing of an item, please contact Joe Weber, Director of Library Services, with the author and/or title of the item, date needed, course taught, and a justification for the request.
