Paula Bales Portrait


Paula is a member of the monographic receipt & discovery team within the Resource Description & Discovery Services Unit. The team is responsible for receiving and ensuring discoverability of incoming material for our library collections. With the patron as its service focus, the team strives for speed, efficiency, accuracy and fiscal responsibility in receiving and paying for library resources. To do so, the team maintains strong relationships with vendors and donors, and works closely with other library partners. Paula provides original cataloging for ETDs in science and engineering. She also contributes name authority records to the LC/NACO authority file and submits literary author call number proposals to the Library of Congress.
