Beth E Snyder

​Head, International Studies Technical Services

About me

I provide leadership and management for functions performed by the specialists in International Studies Technical Services (IS TS) who provide access to collections spanning all subjects and formats in Middle Eastern, South Asian, Southeast Asian, Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Languages. Core functions within IS TS include acquisitions/receiving, cataloging and catalog maintenance, subject and name authority work, and oversight of processing workflows.

My role: 

  • ensure that the IS TS team has the knowledge and tools necessary for success; 
  • facilitate coordinated technical operations within IS; 
  • manage Middle Eastern Studies and Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies technical services staff 
  • coordinate technical processing with Asia Library, Central Technical Services, and other units to expedite access to resources in the catalog; 
  • represent IS TS interests to internal and external library constituents

I have an MILS from the University of Michigan and a BA in Russian Studies from The College of Wooster. Since 1989, I have held a progression of positions within International Studies (formerly Area Programs), have witnessed the decommissioning of the card catalog, and participated in transitions from Innovac to Innopac, Innopac & Notis to Aleph, Dewey to LC classification, and AACR2 to RDA.
