Electronic and Technical Services

The Electronic and Technical Services Department works behind the scenes to provide access to materials in physical and electronic formats to the Daytona Beach and Worldwide campuses. Most E&TS divisions rely upon student assistants for processing materials, transporting materials to the shelves, and other routine tasks. Additional responsibilities handled in the department include supporting Scholarly Commons, our institutional repository, and serving on both library and university committees. The department is comprised of the following divisions:

Acquisitions & Collection Services 

The Collection Management Librarian leads the Collection Management Team, which includes representation from the Research Department and is responsible for selecting materials for the Daytona Beach and Worldwide campuses. The Acquisitions staff orders and receives the materials, handles Summon 360 Link updates, and coordinates theses binding. The Serials staff is responsible for all functions related to obtaining and making serials available in the Library. These functions include ordering, receiving, processing, updating records related to a serial title, claiming, and binding.


The Cataloging department staff performs original and copy cataloging, processes the materials and handles many special projects related to catalog clean-up, deaccessioning, and link checking.

Electronic Services

Staff in the Electronic Services area handle computer and Web matters in the Hunt Library. Responsibilities include the Hunt Library website, the library's electronic subscription databases, the electronic reserves service, the production of print materials, the creation of Hunt Library READ posters, and with assistance from Embry-Riddle's Information Technology Department, the library's public and staff computing needs.

Library and University Systems maintained or used: Ex Libris Alma and Summon, OCLC Article Exchange, ClioWeb, EZproxy, Sitecore (website CMS), Articulate 360, bepress Digital Commons, and Springshare LibApps.
