AcqWeb has moved and is not currently being maintained and contains out-of-date information.  It is in the process of being redesigned. If you have suggestions or are interested in assisting with the revamping of AcqWeb, please contact Eleanor Cook at

Welcome to AcqWeb, sister publication of ACQNET and the gathering place for librarians and other professionals interested in acquisitions and collection development. For those unfamiliar with our terminology, we are the staff who select and purchase the books, serials and related information resources for our libraries. If you are a newcomer to this site, more detailed information can be found in our Editorial Policy.

AcqWeb began in 1994, and continues to grow as the Web grows. We aim to be international in our scope and approach.
