This seminar will offer a high-level overview of the workflows and concepts of the acquisitions process, from selecting materials to interacting with vendors, and articulating the return on investment to the parent organization (academic/special/public libraries). Attendees will gain pragmatic knowledge of strategies and best practices to manage a variety of material types, such as print materials, e-books, and other e-resources. The group will also discuss how emerging issues, like Plan S for open-access science publishing, are affecting core resource management workflows. This class is ideally suited for librarians new to selection and acquisitions workflows.

Topics:
• Collection Management Overview
• Budgeting
• Assessing User Needs / Selecting Materials
• Acquisitions Workflows
• Negotiation Strategies & Legal Issues
• Collections Assessment
• (E)Resources Management
• Marketing / Outreach
