 Acquisition Section-Staff Activity Area of library building in libraray management

The acquisition work consists of selection, approval (by competent authority, Library committee, Department heads, or in some cases the librarian himself), ordering, receipt of books and their transfer to the technical section after accessioning. Adequate space should be provided for all these activities which will include space for a number of shelves for keeping books and various tools required for acquisition work. It should be located near the  catalogue and not far away from the main entrance. Sometimes the inter-library loan activity is the responsibility of this section, since inter-library loan can be considered as a temporary acquisition activity. It is a very responsible task and special care has to be taken about safe custody so that the document acquired or obtained on loan or on approval are not lost.
