The Acquisitions Section implements pertinent policies affecting the Book Fund as stated in the University Library Organic Act. The Section initiates the purchases of books, continuing resources, electronic resources, and educational media. Requests from faculty members,duly approved by the College Library Committee, are prepared by the College Librarian. Purchase Requests, certified by the University Librarian, are coordinated with the Budget Office for allocation, recommended for approval by the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and finally, approved by the Chancellor. These are then forwarded to the Accounting Office for recording and the Supply Office for posting in the Phil-GEPS where interested suppliers bid on the internet for delivery based on approved regulations.
