Technical Services

The Technical Services Department is a mostly behind-the-scenes entity playing numerous critical--- but not always obvious--- roles in the daily operations of the Law Library.

While most students and faculty find that most of their interaction with library personnel occurs with those who are members of the Public Services Department staff (Legal Research Librarians, Circulation staff members), they would probably be quite surprised at the level of work and professionalism that goes into procuring, maintaining, securing, and giving access to the many titles and the multitudes of formats of materials in the modern law library collection. Here at Suffolk, the Technical Services Department is divided into four units: Acquisitions, Cataloging, Serials, and Systems.
