Topic:  Exploring How Internet Access has Changed the Acquisitions
Time:   January 12th, 9:30 - 11:00 AM, New Orleans Convention Center - 101

The Automated Acquisitions/In-Process Discussion Group will sponsor a 1?
hour discussion at the 1998 Midwinter Meeting to explore how internet
access has changed the Acquisitions workplace. What web resources are staff
members going out onto the web to use, and why are those resources being
chosen?  What information and links should be on an Acquisitions homepage?
What are you doing that should (and shouldn't) be up on a website?  Susi
Seiler, Head of Acquisitions at the University of Miami, will address how
her website was developed, and lead a discussion on what web-based
applications are being used by support staff, the need for continual
website maintenance, and plans for future expansion. While our discussion
will focus primarily on web-based acquisition support tools being utilized
by staff, we will also explore the needs of vendors, publishers,
bibliographers, and library patrons.
Please bring what you have done, or have been thinking about to this
meeting, and let's share our ideas and explore our options for creating
links and documents to maximize staff potential.
