Extension faculty and staff.

the university's learning technology infrastructure, including the Wolfware and
WebCT course management systems, and the campus video classrooms.
The Personnel Services Department coordinates recruiting and hiring of
librarians, library staff, and student assistants. They provide staff development

The Finance and Business Office leads the budget development and
reconciliation processes for all the Libraries funds sources: state appropriated,
service fee generated, privately donated, and extramurally funded. F&B
performs the purchasing function for library staff, including the collections
purchases, and also assists the funds receipts processes in Circulation, ILL, RIS,
and FOL. Travel and non-travel employee reimbursements are also handled
here. Finally, the department also performs contract management, maintains
insurance coverage, and does the wage reporting.
The NCSU Libraries Administration helps plan, organize, direct, and promote
activities across the Libraries, including recruitment and personnel development,
planning and research, facilities, and public relations. The offices house the
Director and Vice Provost of Libraries, Deputy Director and four Assistant and
Associate Directors as well as support and professional staff. Tuition waiver
forms must be brought to the office for approval from the Director. Their staff is
available to answer or direct questions to the appropriate person.
