______________

From Elois Sharpe:

Attendees will need a USB headset (and an Internet connection) to utilize the VoIP feature. We recommend that all attendees have headsets with microphones available, and have a current version of Flash player installed.

If attendees have PowerPoint presentations or PDF documents, please send them to me ahead of time so I can upload them.

If you’d like to record the meeting, all presenters will need to submit a signed agreement. Please contact me for this agreement. As meeting host, you will be responsible for starting and ending the recording during the session.

Here are a few tips we’ve discovered that you can pass onto committee members:

1.            Adobe Connect has recently updated their software. When you log-in, you may notice a screen asking you to install the add-in. If you click “yes,” the update will install in about 20-30 seconds. You may need to complete the audio setup wizard after installing the add-in.

2.            Use Firefox, if possible -- Internet Explorer and Chrome seem to have some issues.

3.            Make certain you have an updated version of Flash.

4.            Only use PDF or PPT files.

5.            You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).

6.            Once you enter Adobe Connect (you will sign in as a guest -- so no log-in is needed), you will need to click on the speaker and microphone icons to activate -- both need to be GREEN.

7.            Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.

8.            To test audio, click on ‘Meeting’ in upper left corner. Choose the audio set-up wizard. Click through every step, making sure the dropdown is set to your USB headset, and click through to the very last screen. IMPORTANT: You must click all the way through the audio wizard in order to save your selections.

Event ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

by Jeremy Myntti on Mon, Aug 22, 2016 at 11:13 am

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Acquisitions

Session 4: September 19 - October 28, 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
