Ever wonder what’s happening “behind the wall “ of the circulation desk  or the back offices of the library? Did you ever wonder how titles get entered into the online catalog that you use to search for materials for your assignments?

There is a group of library staff  that order materials, catalog them into the online database, as well as process all of these items and get them to the shelves in a timely manner for you to use. We keep order  in an otherwise chaotic world!

Last year we ordered, cataloged and processed over 6,000 books, dvds, music cds, lps, journals, government documents, and databases.  We’re all about access and making these materials ready for you to search and make available for our Gustavus  community,  as well as the city of St. Peter  and beyond!
