Library Technical Services are responsible for acquiring, organizing, preserving, and providing
access to materials in all formats for the library's collections. These activities underline the
Department of Library Services' vision to redefine academic librarianship in support of the
strategy and core functions of research, teaching and learning of the University of Pretoria. A
main strategic goal of the DLS is therefore to provide proactive, relevant and user – driven
information resources that are aligned to the academic agenda of the university. This entails the
development of a balanced and relevant information collection in all formats, providing access to
online collections and providing the necessary equipment to use all types of information.
Library Technical Services comprise the following Units:
Acquisitions are responsible for ordering, receiving, invoice payment, subscription maintenance (including renewals, claiming, serial check in, and updates) and processing of donations.
The Unit is responsible for all functions necessary for the creation and maintenance of the library catalogue to make resources and collections accessible to facilitate research, teaching and learning
