Acquisitions Librarians

Work Environment

Acquisitions librarians work in an intellectually engaging and fast-paced environment. The work can be challenging at times, as they must satisfy a variety of requests from patrons—from a student seeking an obscure book on medieval cooking to educators requesting a new series of historical biographies. Acquisitions librarians must be able to maintain their concentration and focus as they move from a critical budget meeting with the library director to interacting with library patrons, to making the rounds at an important book fair, to poring over a new stack of publisher's reviews.
