About this item

This guide offers a theory-based, concept-oriented perspective on library acquisitions that draws on Manuel DeLanda's Assemblage Theory (in which wholes are made up of parts that interact with each other) to organize, synthesize, plan, and execute acquisitions work. He discusses working with vendors; discovery services, ebooks, and online ordering; the service and feedback role of acquisitions; and a strategic approach to managing acquisitions. Revised and expanded, this edition reflects changes in libraries like the impact of global the financial crisis, and it adds more discussion of core aspects of acquisitions.
