This website is dedicated to the study of organizational structures for cataloging units in academic libraries. It was developed in 2016 and is maintained by Jeremy Myntti, Head of Digital Library Services at the University of Utah and Liz Woolcott, Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services at Utah State University, as part of the output stemming from a survey that analyzed the Organization and Structure of Cataloging Units in Academic Libraries. The survey was available through April 30, 2016. You can see the PDF of the survey here.
As part of an effort to start and maintain a conversation about how work and working units are structured in academic libraries, we will post regular updates as we analyze the data collected in our survey. We encourage anyone who would like to contribute information, organization charts, blog posts, thoughts, ideas, or observations to contact us at:
