Much thanks and appreciation to department working group members (April Peebles, Eric Gumbayan, Pauline Bickford-Duane, Laura Feder, and Michelle Elneil)!

About Acquisitions & Collections Services Department

To achieve the strategic direction for creative and dynamic content management, dedicated staff in the Acquisitions & Collections Services Department acquire online resources, print books, serials, and various materials on behalf of the University of Florida Smathers Libraries and all associated branches.

The department consists of three units of operations: Collections Support, Accounting & Serials, and Electronic Resources (E-Resources), plus two programs - Gifts and Exchanges. In conjunction with the university libraries' Subject Specialists/Selectors, staff in the department manage orders, pay invoices, and track a combined materials budget in excess of 13 million dollars.

Staff also administer several Use-Driven Acquisitions (UDA) plans; maintain thousands of serial subscriptions; oversee monograph approval/slip plans that acquire print and e-books; and establish license agreements and maintain access to several thousand databases and online journals.
