Title:The Mechanics of Book Ordering
Author(s):Sander, Harold
Subject(s):Acquisitions (Libraries)
Abstract:The tasks which the ordering agency of a library performs and the methods used in performing these tasks are determined by the functions and responsibilities assigned to that agency, the place of the agency in the library's organization structure, and the legal restrictions which it must observe. Translated into more specific terms, the activities and procedures of the ordering agency will be dictated by its relations to the book selection processes of the library, its part in budget control, the laws of the state or municipality which affect its purchasing procedures, and the reports which it is required to make to the library's governing board, to the library administrator, and to other library agencies.
