The mission of Order Services is to provide exceptional support services for all collection development activities through prudent stewardship of the materials budget and strong working relations with our customers, colleagues and business partners.
Order Services assists Library Selectors with placing orders for print and media purchases for the collections. We order and receive materials for all areas of the physical collections except purchases for the Business Library and non-Roman language materials ordered by Area Studies Selectors. We work with Collection Management, Interlibrary Loan, Reserves, Preservation, and many other areas of the library to fulfill and receive orders for new and out of print publications.
We manage rush, standing orders, media purchasing, monographic series, approval plans, and firm orders from vendors around the world.
We collaborate with Accounting on fiscal rollovers, invoicing issues, vendor account setup, and many other transactions impacting book funds.
