Library Technical Services: Library Technical Services

Library Technical Services

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

    Acquisitions are responsible for ordering, receiving, invoice payment, subscription maintenance (including renewals, claiming, serial check in, and updates) and processing of donations.


  • Cataloguing

    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
