Acquisitions and Collection Development
The Acquisitions staff administers the library's collections and supplies budgets, orders, receives, and processes invoices for library supplies and all library materials except for serials and journals.
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, maintains the library's Periodicals List files, and prepares library materials for binding.
The Serials staff orders, checks in, and processes journals and serials, along with the associated invoices. Staff also collects and distributes the library's mail.
We believe that the student is the most important person on this campus. Without them, there would be no need for this library. We are dependent on them. They are not to be hurried away so we can do our own thing — they are our thing. They are not an interruption to our work, but the purpose of it.
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.
