LTS - Library Collections
Database Maintenance Specialist
I help the Wellesley community access resources through the library catalog and Resource Sharing (also known as Interlibrary Loan). I keep the catalog up to date by creating records for resources in Clapp, Art, and Music Library collections, deleting records as obsolete resources are weeded from the collection, and managing records for eBooks and streaming videos that vendors provide us. Additionally, I assist our Resource Sharing Specialist, Angie Batson, in working with libraries to borrow and lend library materials. I primarily work in lending our resources out, maintaining collaborative relationships with libraries around the world. Also, sometimes our patrons request books through Resource Sharing that Wellesley already owns. I fulfill those requests by locating our copy of the resource to ensure our community gets the materials they need the quickest way possible.
