The Acquisitions and Collection Development Round Table (ACDRT) exists to promote and improve library acquisitions and collection development work, to encourage the exchange of ideas and techniques among libraries, and to foster relations with other branches of library service, publishers, dealers, jobbers, and other libraries and organizations.  It also tries to keep up with current trends in the field of identifying and acquiring library materials for all types of libraries.


ACDRT Goals & Objectives:


  • To examine alternate forms of communication in addition to, or in the place of quarterly eForums, in order to enhance the benefits of membership and to promote communication and collaboration.  
  • To further examine the responses to the membership survey conducted in 2014/2015, with the purpose of identifying programs, communication methods, and/or other means of attracting and retaining a robust and participatory membership.
  • To organize and produce programs for the 2016 Annual Conference that will provide useful information and insight to librarians in the areas of acquisitions and collection development and attract attendees to join ACDRT.
