The Bibliographic Control Department (BCD) is responsible for the content and quality control of the Library's online catalog.
Materials are received in a variety of formats (e.g., books, periodicals, musical scores, kits, computer disks) and from a variety of sources (e.g., publishers, United States Government Printing Office, persons or organizations on campus or in the community). BCD provides bibliographic records for all materials received. It is responsible for the creation and maintenance of all bibliographic and authority records.
Providing bibliographic access to library materials which is accurate, understandable and available in a timely fashion in order to assist in the academic and informational goals and needs of the students, faculty, staff and community of California State University, Sacramento is the mission of the department.
