Policies & Procedures
The Technical Services Department is one of six major units which constitute the Princeton University Library.
The Technical Services Department provides technical processing -- acquisition, cataloging, binding and record management -- for the vast majority of materials acquired for the Princeton collections. The Technical Services Department is responsible for all circulation, shelving and stack maintenance functions pertaining to the collections housed within the main library (Firestone) and the two remote book storage facilities (the Annexes), which comprise more than one-half of the Library's holdings of six million volumes, and also provides service for the Library's primary course reserve facilities and General Periodicals Collection.
