Each issue of The Acquisitions Librarian is devoted to one broad,
well-defined, and practical topic of immediate concern to everyone working
in library/information center acquisitions and collection development. The
journal's thematic approach provides a continuing source of
up-to-the-minute, definitive guides to the critical issues that librarians
and information specialists face as collectors and purchasers of knowledge
and information. This journal will help you define and extend your role,
responsibility, and professional status in libraries and information centers
and services of all types.

The Acquisitions Librarian explores many different aspects of locating,
purchasing and attaining material, including:

* finding publishers and distributors

* getting the best price on books
* how to process gifts to the library
* new programs, policies, and projects to make your job easier
* legal issues

This journal uses research results, examples of current practices, and
comparative analyses to offer you the best techniques and strategies to make
the acquisitions process faster, easier, and more profitable for your
library patrons. The Acquisitions Librarian is a vital resource for anyone
who wants to be on the cutting edge of finance and administration,
technological aids, collection policies, order processes, jobbers and
agents, international aspects, and resource-sharing.
