Collection Management Services

Collection Management Services (CMS) is responsible for a variety of services within the University Library, including electronic course reserves (e-reserves), print reserve processing for the Undergraduate Library and Central Circulation and media reserve processing for the Undergraduate Library, course and research related media acquisitions, media cataloging, gift materials processing, and remote storage at the Oak Street Library Facility.

A growing part of the unit responsibilities is to provide services relating to large-scale collection management, whether they be transfers, retrospective cataloging projects, physical shifts of collections, or some combination of all three. Almost all such projects have multiple benefits in terms of access for patrons and inventory control, and in some instances quite unique hidden collections have been discovered and made available. Though the large projects often use a great deal of the available time and resources, CMS also makes it a priority to assist smaller libraries and staff not accustomed to the transfer process whenever time permits.

Oak Street

Oak Street High Density Storage at the Oak Street Library Facility provides remote storage for less-used Library materials, as well as materials that require ideal preservation conditions. More than three million volumes are held at Oak Street High Density Storage.

You can place requests for items located in Oak Street High Density Storage via the Library's online catalog, and designate either a specific pick-up location or ask to have the material delivered through campus mail. Turnaround time for receiving material from Oak Street High Density Storage is comparable to other UIUC campus libraries.

Reserves

CMS processes all electronic course reserves (e-reserves) for the campus, print reserves for the Undergraduate Library and Central Circulation, media reserves for the Undergraduate Library, and audio reserves in conjunction with the Music and Performing Arts Library.

Media

Starting July 2014, the staff of the Media Commons in the Undergraduate Library is handling all aspects of media ordering and the streaming video collection. These pages will move later this summer.

Gifts

The University of Illinois Library accepts gifts-in-kind to help provide additional materials that might not otherwise be available to users. Gifts to the Library benefit students and researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and thousands of researchers and citizens throughout Illinois, the nation and the world. Responsible stewardship of gifts of material to the Library collection is as important to the general vitality of our Library as are the purchases we make.
