Acquisitions Assistant

About me

As Acquisitions Assistant, I receive and process all firm, rush, approval and standing orders print material.  I use the Metadata Editor in Alma to make PO Lines for single print materials and to edit standing orders holdings and bibliographic records.  I use import profiles to upload embedded order data and shelf-ready materials into Alma from MARC files provided by vendors.  I also create invoices as needed especially for rush and notify print materials.
