Technical Services: Synagogue Libraries

What are technical services?

This area includes physically processing materials for use in the library (for example, covering book jackets with plastic covers and affixing labels).

It primarily refers to the following special library tasks, which are listed here:

Cataloging - the system by which materials are recorded for listing in a library catalog

Classification - the system by which materials are organized in the library (the number on the spine of a book, for example)

Circulation - the system by which materials are borrowed and returned to the library

Automation - a computer-driven system by which materials may be catalogued and/or circulated (checked out of) the library
