Automation, Indexing, and Metadata

Department information

What we do

We’re responsible for developing, enhancing, and maintaining systems and processes that support core library operational functions. This includes acquisition and cataloging of materials, circulation (checkout) of materials, course reserves, infrastructure behind Library Catalog Search, and more.

We are also responsible for support of some key HathiTrust Digital Library functions and services.

What we're working on

Currently, our primary project is preparation for major migration from our current library management system (which has been in place since 2004) to a new cloud-based system. Cutover is planned for July 2021. Our staff are also involved in a major initiative to enhance the system that HathiTrust uses to manage information about the holdings of individual member institutions.
