Global Strategy for Technical Services
|Keywords:||Library technical services|
|Abstract:||New York University Libraries supports technical services for two portal campuses based in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai. Staff in each location have worked together to develop a successful technical services operation that strengthens the Global Network University’s access to knowledge and management of resources. Based upon this experience, strategies are recommended for global libraries supporting a similar project. Issues considered are the coordination and communication between global and local processing units, staffing, training, and professional development in a global context, sharing the ILS system and selecting suitable vendors, providing secure global shipping services, cataloging items by surrogate, and creating a separate workflow for special collections.|
