The Collections and Resource Description (C&RD) Department was formed in April 2008 following the merger of Bodleian Libraries Collection Management and Bodleian Libraries Technical Services. Catriona Cannon is Assistant Director for C&RD.
The department is responsible for collection development, acquisitions, cataloguing, serials, and electronic resources in the Bodleian Libraries. It also deals with legal deposit intake which forms a large percentage of the print collection. Whilst selection of library materials is done by subject consultants, C&RD is responsible for the allocation and management of the library materials budget.
Below is a list of the different sections of the department.
