Ordering Soup to Nuts

3. Acquisitions Module

  • Open the Acquisitions module. Click on Orders in the List bar, and create a new purchase order by double clicking the New Purchase Order icon (or use Alt-f-n-o). Fill in the all fields on the header, and save it to the database.

    For monographic orders, Site, Ship to and Bill to should be Acqord.

  • Add a line item to the purchase order for the record you saved in Cataloging by using Line item>Add>By Bib ID.  ( or Alt-L-A-D) Fill in all the fields on the line item with appropriate values.

  • Fill in claim and cancellation intervals on the footer if necessary (See Placing Orders in Different Formats for appropriate values).

Default claim and cancellation values will prompt from the vendor record. You will need to change them for certain types of orders.

  • Save the record to the database. Leave the status as pending. You are now finished with a typical purchase order (after you are certified, you will also approve the order)
