The Library’s Collection Access and Management Services is located on the fourth floor, West Wing of the Oviatt Library. Office hours are 8am – 5 pm, Monday – Friday.

The Collection Access and Management Services (CAMS) Department is responsible for selecting, acquiring, receiving, invoicing, cataloging, and processing all of the library materials contained in the Oviatt Library. CAMS provides access to Library resources through our discovery tool. Collection Development coordinates the work of academic department faculty (faculty liaisons) and librarians, who cooperatively select resources for the collection. CAMS also provides control for the Library archival, digital and electronic collections, including journals, newspapers, magazines, books in series and other publications issued in sequence, as well as government documents.
