This book is a guide that leads the reader through many aspects of a library's collection including the user, current holdings, selection, and acquisition of new materials. The reader is also led to consider budgets, and how books are made available in 21st century markets. Methods for assessing library vendors are described. Practical details are frequently included; concepts and theory are alluded to but are not a major emphasis of the text. A global scope creates an inclusive mood for readers in developed or developing nations. The final chapter speculates upon acquisitions librarianship in the 21st century, on influences of biotechnology, nanotechnology, and increased computerization. This is a fundamental book for the student or practicing librarian, a book that shares much about acquisitions but admits an uncertainty about the evolution of the profession.
