Abstract:
In the most recent restructuring of the University of Arizona Libraries in May 2011, a new team was formed: the Description, Delivery, and Acquisition Team (DDAT). Similar work in the Libraries was assigned to DDAT. The highest-priority work of DDAT is the acquisition and delivery of information needed to support our primary customers’ teaching, research, and learning. Ordering and interlibrary loan (ILL) support obtaining information; cataloging and metadata work support discovery; ILL and all document delivery services provide delivery of information. This team is also responsible for planning, coordinating, and implementing in-house digital scanning and reproduction work, which merges the application of metadata and cataloging on a single team. The functions of this team implement the information access/acquisition policies and apply the cataloging and metadata strategies, schema, and standards that are set by this team in coordination with other teams in the Libraries. This poster session will present the process used to form the new team, the implementation process, and how the team continues to cross-train, assign work, and measure success.
