  • Description
  • About the Author

Small but mighty, this guide:

  • provides basic preservation terminology;
  • discusses the role the acquisition librarian plays in the preservation of library collections;
  • encourages acquisitions librarians to integrate preservation activities into the acquisition process and discusses the coordination of acquisition, collection development, and preservation functions; and
  • offers scenarios for handling items in poor condition in the acquisition process.
