The evolution of collections and services provided by the contemporary library are changing the nature of traditional acquisitions activities and jobs. Effective advocacy for these evolving roles is now a necessary part of the work of evaluating organizational needs, linking these needs to position responsibilities, and moving ahead with both reorganizations and recruitment. Join us as three information professionals acknowledge the role of advocacy for the work of acquisitions as a part of their efforts to evolve traditional roles and staffing within their libraries to meet user and organizational needs.
