About Acquisitions Services
Acquisitions Services is the branch of Technical Services responsible for acquiring
material for the various collections of the Princeton University Library.
We perform a wide variety of tasks associated with
library acquisitions, including pre-order searching, ordering, receiving,
record maintenance, periodical check-in, copy cataloging, invoicing, sorting/distributing
for cataloging, labeling and/or binding of these materials.
Acquisitions consists of four primary units, each organized either by
its function or by the material-type being processed. In addition, the
Division manages many approval plans, although some of the production
work for these acquisitions takes place in Catalog and Metadata Services.
