The acquisition of out-of-print materials provides unique challenges to librarians in all types of libraries. Guide to Out-of-Print Materials offers a helpful overview of tools (both traditional and electronic) and techniques available for locating and purchasing these often hard-to-find items. Chapters cover books, serials, and audio-visual materials. Also includes a glossary of commonly used out-of-print terms, a bibliography of recommended readings and resources, and a URL resource list appendix. While not intended as a comprehensive source of information, acquisitions librarians will find it a handy tool for enhancing their collections.
