When titles are determined to be out of print, the request will be passed on to the liaison librarian for initial review to determine if a search should be initiated.
The liaison librarian can choose to return the request to acquisitions, asking for a search to be initiated, or return the request to the department representative for final review. In either case, if an out-of-print search is requested, the representative or liaison should indicate the maximum price that should be paid for each item before resubmitting the order to acquisitions.
Requests for out-of-print material selected from dealers’ catalogs should be expedited to the Acquisitions Department accompanied by the catalog. Often the dealer has only one copy of each title, and these items are quickly sold.
