This program, a continuation of 2014’s well-attended ‘Hip Tips’ program, is relevant whether you attended last year or not! Acquisitions education and training is not addressed much in library schools – it’s mostly on-the-job training. Acquisitions librarians will share tips and tools used effectively on a daily basis, as well as advice for some of the more perplexing issues and the steps taken toward their resolution. Participants will learn in a collegial, communal atmosphere, with the opportunity to share questions, answers, and experiences with other attendees. This program is sponsored by the TS-SIS.
