We are a bit smaller at a bit less than 12,000, including our distance programs. We have a Chair of E-Resources/Serials (librarian), Head of Serials (non-librarian) and a technician. We do not have a cataloger, specific to serials. Individual titles are handled as they come up in the cataloging area. Loads form vendors are handled by me.

I am interested in finding out the number of librarians and staff for serials cataloging other libraries have who are similar in size to ours. I'm interested in academic libraries that serve student populations of approximately 15,000-18,000. Our library has acquisition staff that order, check-in, and conduct shelf maintenance for our serials. Cataloging staff for serials consists of one person - me. I would like to know if other libraries our size have more than one cataloging staff for serials. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks so much!
