The Acquisitions staff administers the library's collections and supplies budgets, orders, receives, and processes invoices for library supplies and all library materials. The Serials staff orders, checks in, and processes both online and print journals and serials, along with the associated invoices. Staff also collects and distributes the library's mail.

The Collection Development staff works closely with the librarians and university faculty to select materials for inclusion in the library's collections, and assists with collection management activities. The staff also processes gifts, and maintains the library's Periodicals List files.

The department's staff members work closely with each other, library staff, the librarians, and campus faculty to select, order, process, and pay for library materials that support the University of Wisconsin-Platteville's educational mission.


The Acquisitions/Collection Development/Serials Departments are located on the library's first floor, in the Technical Services area.
