Assets and Administrative Structure

In 1993, the department reorganized into eight specialized teams focusing on areas such as reclass, special collections, humanities, and foreign language. This change replaced the subdivision of the department into cataloging units. The department was organized into three cataloging units, an RLIN unit, and a typing-labeling pool. In 2006, the department was organized into sections, including area studies, special collections, and staff and serials. The department was divided into two departments and a unit in 2007 in accordance with the library's new strategic directions.
