  • Description

Packed with checklists and real-life examples, this book provides authoritative guidance on procedures and practice in acquisitions. It approaches the acquisitions process logically through various stages from requests through to the checking, ordering, and receipt of library materials. This new third edition takes full account of online ordering, the purchasing of electronic materials, automation of acquisitions, change in the supply chain, and consortia purchasing. It also covers acquiring non-book materials, including those in electronic formats, government information, music, and audiovisual materials.
