Re: Criteria for choosing a serials vendor? Terence Rose 31 Aug 2000 19:15 UTC

Hi Phyllis,

The sources I have used are "Guidelines for Handling Library Orders"
Acquisition Guidelines no.7 by Serials Section Acquisitions Committee of
the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (the source
is dated but it will give you a good overview) and an excellent source
that I have used is the "RFP Process: Effective Management of the
Acquisition of Library Materials" by Frances C. Wilkinson and Connie
Thorson published by Libraries Unlimited. ISBN 1-5-56308-481-3 (PS: I
reviewed this book in Serials Review) this book will give you examples of
criteria for choosing a Serials Vendor.

These two sources should provide information and point to other sources
for further research.
