The book truck waiting to be cataloged is gone, but backlogs are not; they’re just harder to find. E-book packages can be accompanied by inaccurate title lists, front files, unavailable or poor quality MARC records, pre-published chapters, and other issues that complicate discovery and undermine the traditional technical services workflow. When this happens resources slip through the cracks creating a hidden virtual backlog. The creativity of today’s cataloger finds and makes discoverable these hidden materials.
