Government Documents and InterLibrary Loan: The Red Headed Stepchildren in the Technical Services Process

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Speak of government publications collections or interlibrary to colleagues and quite often one receives a glazed over look. In the era of reorganization, retirement and reductions these collections and services have come under a microscope as to their value. Traditionally government publications have been considered a stand-alone collection, where the documents librarian makes all of the decisions without input from subject specialists, bibliographers or technical services staff. Interlibrary Loan has faced many of the same issues. Traditionally they exist to get the needed materials for our users. Many librarians took a class on government publications and document delivery and never looked back. But the understanding of these unique areas are important to the technical services and collection management process. The model for collection management, providing service and the processing in these areas is changing. As selectors we need to take a second look at how these areas can be treated as integrated areas of the library. We will discuss what some of the traditional models have been and how they are changing to meet these new needs. We will also involve the audience in questions they have about documents and interlibrary loan and integrating them into public service and technical services more fully.
