Readers are invited to submit articles for publication in an issue of
The Acquisitions Librarian. The theme of this issue will be the

libraries truly integrate materials in all formats, or do they maintain
individual collections separated by format?

reference work
·       Comparison of single and multiple record approaches in
·       Digitization of special or unique collections and materials
·       The effect of chat reference service on selecting reference
·       Library planning and electronic resources: how should libraries
change their floor plans?
·       Licensing issues and integrated collections: how the licensing
of electronic resources affects collection management

You are welcome to choose any of these topics, or another of your own.
Theoretical articles, research studies, "how-to" articles and opinion
pieces will be welcome. Articles may be written by individuals or

After the journal issue appears, it will be published as a book.
