Profile

Carrie Buss works behind the scenes on the fourth floor of FLITE in technical services. Her responsibilities include acquisitions, copy cataloging, data maintenance, and serials. She orders books, downloads bibliographic records to the library's online catalog system, creates order records, and initiates purchase order payments. She helps ensure new content is available by receiving, cataloging, preparing print materials for circulation, and inserting and verifying links to electronic books and journals. Carrie regularly works on maintaining the collection, including removing obsolete, superseded, and older low-use items. She keeps collection records current by updating bibliographic and holdings information in FLITE's online catalog and in OCLC. She checks in standing orders and serial subscriptions, and makes payments in the integrated library system. Carrie also assists with periodicals check-in, the processing of government documents, and special projects undertaken by the department.

Carrie has served on Library search committees and on a Library Programs and Displays Committee.
