Cuyamaca Library: Mission & Program Review

Goals of the circulation and technical services department

The goal of the circulation and technical services is to provide students with easy access to library materials. This circulation desk is where students can check out materials, inquire about the status of a book, check out course reserves materials, check out materials ordered through Interlibrary Loan

Access Services is also in charge of processing all library material added to the print and media collection. This includes items generously donated from our faculty and alumni patrons. The Access Services Department is also responsible for removing an item from the collection, the catalog, and OCLC when it is out of date or no longer needed. Additionally, the members of this department build and maintain the online library catalog and provide catalog and collection statistics upon request for local and state reporting.


Inventory project

Access Services Department and Technical services worked to inventory all the print materials in the library. This inventory was a major step in eliminating confusion about our library’s current holdings. During the project some missing items were replaced, processed and put back on the shelves.
