Synopsis

Here is a timely new book on the pressing legal and ethical issues that are faced by librarians on a daily basis. Chapters written by librarians, lawyers, accountants, and business people discuss the concept of acquisitions as a business, address some of the ramifications of the climate in which practicing acquisitions librarians now find themselves, and examine some of the skills that will be required as the acquisitions librarian changes to meet the emerging demands.

Legal and Ethical Issues in Acquisitions features: * an overview of antitrust issues in publishing * practical suggestions for communicating with publishers * a discussion of the acquisitions librarian's role in dealing with charitable contributions * a look at the issues involved in the purchase of new technologies * information on the ethical and fiscal problems associated with the selection of appropriate materials for library collections * a view of the business relationship between libraries and booksellers * legal advice on the ramifications of a library allowing juveniles access to materials that are inappropriate for their age * insider information on subscription vendor service charges and on getting the "best deal" * a philosophical look at the problem of weeding books from a library's collection
