How do Acquisitions departments efficiently acquire all the resources needed for the modern academic research library? University of Michigan Library and Stanford Libraries will discuss current order processes and describe each institution’s evolution in reviewing and modernizing acquisitions practices to move from paper to electronic ordering.
Topics include:
Partnering with selectors
Managing expectations internally and externally
Breaking down print vs. electronic format and recurring vs. one-time order silos
Moving from manual to automated workflows
Navigating multiple systems (ERMs, LMSs, university financial management systems)
Evaluating and implementing tools for making workflows more efficient
Additionally we will hear how FOLIO plans to implement various apps for improving workflows and staff experiences when acquiring resources. Learn about taking risks and embracing change, and find out what your library can do to make ordering more efficient.
