1 Scopus citations


The year 1992 saw acquisitions departments trying to do more with fewer resources. Acquisitions librarians are grappling with changing technology by adapting, learning, and discussing problems that all face. The literature of acquisitions in 1992 is examined in several categories: acquisitions organization, conference reports, pricing issues and budgetary concerns, vendor performance, electronic publishing, automation, and acquisitions abroad. The proliferation of electronic communications is having a profound impact on acquisitions. Issues of access versus ownership, copyright, and storage of electronic media are becoming a part of the business of acquisitions.
