Event ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

by Jeremy Myntti on Thu, Oct 6, 2016 at 10:31 am

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

Session 5: November 7 - December 16, 2016

This six-week online course is a basic primer for library acquisitions concepts common to all library materials formats. It covers:

  • Goals and methods of acquiring monographs and serials in all formats;

  • Theoretical foundations and workflows of basic acquisitions functions;

  • Financial management of library collections budgets;

  • Relationships among acquisitions librarians, library booksellers, subscription agents, and publishers.


This course provides a broad overview of the operations involved in acquiring materials after the selection decision is made.

In FOA, we distinguish between collection development, which involves the selection of materials for the library; and acquisitions, which orders, receives, and pays for those materials. In many libraries, selecting and acquiring materials may be done in the same department—in the smallest libraries perhaps even by the same person. In larger libraries, selection may be done by a collection development department and/or designated subject specialists, while a separate department acquires the selected materials.  In essence, acquisitions is a business operation, bringing materials into the library and licensing access to library collections and resources.

Who Should Attend:  As a fundamentals course, FOA is tailored for librarians and paraprofessionals new to the acquisitions field; and librarians and support staff from other library units and library school or LSSC students who want to know more about acquisitions.  Although FOA focuses on the acquisition of monographs in various physical formats, it covers key components of acquisition and licensing processes for all library materials, in all formats, in all types of libraries.

This course is one-third of the Collection Management Elective course approved by the Library Support Staff Certification Program (LSSCP).

Because success in acquisitions depends on ability to collaborate, negotiate, and be flexible to work out win-win solutions with others, this course includes collaborative and social elements.

Instructors

  • Betsy Redman, Acquisitions Serials Librarian, Arizona State University

  • Eleanor Cook, Assistant Director for Discovery & Technical Services Academic Library Services, East Carolina University

  • Michelle Flinchbaugh, Acquisitions and Digital Scholarship Services Librarian, UMBC Library

  • Donna Smith, Assistant Head of Technical Services, Northern Kentucky University

  • Jennifer Arnold, Director, Library Services, Central Piedmont Community College

  • Kate Kasimor is Technical Services Librarian at Higher Colleges of Technology (United Arab Emirates).

  • Kate B. Moore is Coordinator of Electronic Resources at Indiana University Southeast.

  • Christina Hennessey is Cataloging Librarian at Loyola Marymount University in California.

Registration Fees:  $139 ALCTS Member and  $169 Non-member

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

 

Collection Managers and Technical Services Colleagues: Do the words “gift” and “donation” make you want to hide in your office? Does it feel as if you’re drowning in a sea of patron generosity? Or, perhaps your institution implemented policies that expand the collection without anyone having to gently refuse yet another copy of last year’s bestseller? Please join the ALCTS e-Forum on October 25-26, 2016 as we share experiences, discuss policy options, and explore strategies for effective gifts management.
