We adopted the name "Resource Management Services" last year. It was an
attempt to convey a more meaningful purpose of the unit to non-library
people. The public services group is called "Learning and Access
Services." Of course, we still use the terms Reference, Circ, and Technical
Services among ourselves. Actually, we still use Acquisitions, Serials,
Cataloging, etc. among ourselves too, even though we have been merged for
over ten years. Some things change slowly.
