Effect of Computerization on Acquisitions.
Kilgour, Frederick G.
Computerization of acquisitions activity is a technological advance already underway. Like all advances in technology it requires advances in knowledge, and future advances will occur only after research has produced the necessary knowledge. Comprehensive system design made possible by computerization will provide acquisitions with the objective of participating in academic educational and research programs. Finally, computerization of acquisitions constituting a continuously productive new technology will contribute to elimination of the financial crisis in which academic libraries now find themselves.
