Do You Use Acquisitions? Why Not?

In Sierra, everyone may use Circulation and Cataloging but many fewer of us use Acquisitions, and those of us that do use it, have different workflows and expectations from this function. In this panel discussion, four libraries, represented by Holli Henslee (Drury University), Christina Prucha (State Technical College of Missouri), Brady Shuman (Covenant Seminary), and Natasha Young (Northwest Missouri State University), will explain why they use Acquisitions. They will discuss how Acquisitions is set up at in their libraries, their workflows, and the kinds of details they are able to capture and track within Sierra because of this function. The session is geared towards people who do not currently use Acquisitions and are curious about how it works and why a library would choose to use it. It may also be of interest to those currently using Acquisitions as a point of comparison to their own setup, workflow, and use.
