We provide collection management, coordination and strategic planning to support the curricular and scholarly information needs of the Bucknell University community. Development of library collections at Bucknell is a collaborative effort involving librarians, faculty members and staff. In addition to managing both the print and electronic resources available for research, we provide access to our collections via the library catalog and other database vendors. We also provide access to the collections of other libraries via interlibrary loan. Acquisitions, Cataloging, Circulation, Electronic Resource Management, Equipment for Check-out, Interlibrary Loan, Library Systems and Serials are the individual work units that are comprised under this umbrella.
