Beth Picknally Camden, the second Patricia and Bernard Goldstein Director of Information Processing, supervises a staff of more than fifty people. Working with scores of high-end computers, these library professionals acquire, process, and catalog all of the material that replenishes the Library's store of knowledge: journals, books, newspapers, video recordings, microforms, and electronic resources.

"As the Library continues to adapt to the changing needs of our users, we must acquire and process new types of materials for our collections. We are grateful for Patricia and Bernard Goldstein's support of the Information Processing Center, which has given Library staff the tools to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing environment."
