The Electronic and Technical Services (E&TS) Department works behind the scenes to provide access to materials in physical and electronic formats to the Daytona Beach and Worldwide campuses. E&TS staff also support Scholarly Commons, our institutional repository, and serve on both library and university committees. The department is comprised of the following divisions:

Acquisitions & Collection Services 

The Head of Collection Management leads the Collection Management Team, which includes representation from all library departments and is responsible for selecting materials for the Daytona Beach and Worldwide campuses. The Acquisitions staff acquire resources needed to support the educational and research mission of Embry-Riddle by ordering, receiving, and processing library material in any format. They administer the collections budget, negotiate license agreements with publishers and vendors, activate access to electronic resources and troubleshoot access issues.


The Cataloging and Metadata staff performs original and copy cataloging, processes materials and handles many special projects related to catalog clean-up and deaccessioning. Preservation activities are also handled by a member of the Cataloging and Metadata unit.

Electronic Services

Staff in the Electronic Services area are responsible for the maintaining the Hunt Library website, providing access to the library's electronic subscription databases, compiling usage and other statistical reports, and producing print and electronic promotional materials.
