Resource Description Group

The Resource Description Group is responsible for describing and providing access at various levels to serial (excluding periodicals) and monographic content in all formats ( textual format, visual, sound, streaming, cartographic, etc.).  MAchine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) and non-MARC catalog records are created in this unit. The team's goal is to support university community in its research, teaching and learning. The team actively keeps pace with shifting library priorities and evolving standards.
