College Bibliocentre Acquisition and Accounting System Description Manual.
College Bibliocentre, Don Mills (Ontario).
The Acquisition and Accounting System is a complex designed to perform all functions in the following areas: (1) ordering; (2) receipt, shipment and cancellation; (3) accounts payable, (4) invoicing, (5) order status, (6) inventory, (7) college budgeting and (8) management information reports. Some of the benefits that accrue from the system are: (1) Quality ordering and centralizing of ordering and accounting procedures produce a considerable savings to the Colleges; (2) The holdings of all participating Colleges are maintained and constantly updated; (3) Simplification of work at the Bibliocentre is achieved by eliminating manual file searches for overdue items and in automatically producing invoices upon notice of a shipment; (4) Once an order has entered the system it cannot be lost or misplaced; (5) Files are both up-to-date and historical; and (6) Accurate controls can be readily maintained; audit trails for checking purposes are prepared as an integral part of the system, so are Bibliocentre and Suppliers' performance data.
