However, acquisitions conferences and publications have by no means become moribund, but rather are fully absorbed in working through all the initiatives named above: EDI, electronic publications, license agreements, contract management, library reorganization and staffing, etc. Whatever the future may hold, there is no shortage of acquisitions work and issues to attend to in the meantime. Numerous scenarios for managing the acquisition and delivery of information sources to libraries and library patrons are being envisioned; some are being implemented.
We hope that the book will be useful to students and teachers of librarianship and to practicing librarians of all kinds who wish to learn more about current technical services topics. Although the chapters in this book are, by and large, not for absolute beginners, the topics have been made accessible to the general reader who is a librarian, library school student, or library educator. It should be noted that the majority of contributors to this book have an academic/research library background.
The acquisitions librarian has to have a foot in the camps of both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, and it is this person's job to communicate the needs of each sector to the mutual benefit of both. In the past, many large acquisitions departments had several librarians handling various aspects of acquisitions. It was not unusual to have, say, an order librarian, an approval/blanket-orders librarian, a continuations librarian, or a receipts librarian. The work of a librarian in acquisitions is almost entirely managerial, and the bulk of the work in acquisitions is almost entirely clerical and paraprofessional.
