Special Interest Groups: Technical Services

Technical Services Special Interest Group (TeSSIG)

In today’s climate, libraries are facing many of the same struggles and Technical Services departments have their own share of challenges. The goal of the Technical Services Special Interest Group (TeSSIG) is to provide a community of resources for Technical Services departments in SWON Libraries Consortium's Members (all libraries of Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky).

TeSSIG will encompass all areas of Technical Services – from acquisitions, to cataloging, to processing and any other hat we need to wear! Through regularly scheduled meetings, TeSSIG will explore current trends and challenges, as well as share workflow ideas.

Each meeting will focus on a predetermined topic of discussion along with a period of open discussion. In order to support TeSSIG’s goal of sharing ideas and resources, each meeting will be held at a different library in the area (or at SWON’s office if no library is able to host). Ideally, each meeting will conclude with a brief tour of the hosting library’s department to see how that library is structured and get an idea of the workflow.

Structure of meetings

  1. Introduction of participants
  2. Discussion of current Technical Services issues/news
  3. Topic of the month
  4. Programming/professional development needs
  5. Tour of hosting library’s Technical Services Department
