Welcome to 1987 and Happy New Year! As most of you already know, at the
LSO lunch the move to rename the GB was soundly defeated, despite a strong
effort from a last minute entry. Therefore, the title of this publication
will remain the same, as will the color.
A Happy reading. j ——KK
The new W4 forms, a result of the recent overhaul of the tax system, are
now available through the Director's Office. Copies have been distributed to
all departments. However, if you haven't received your copy, please contact
AND PART—TIME EMPLOYEES. Although the forms are not due into the IRS until
October 1987, please fill them out as soon as possible, and return them to Ann
Howell in the Dlrector's Office.
Although they cannot offer advice on filling out the forms, the
Government Documents Department in King Library has copies of the necessary
supplementary materials published by the IRS. The IRS has also provided a

The ACTS Executive Committee has announced a General Assembly meeting to
” be held on Tuesday, January 20, 1987 at 10:00 am. The meeting will be held in
} the Gallery of King North. The featured speaker will be Dr. Raymond Betts,
,* Director of the Honors Program, and he will address the search for*the new
{ president of UK.
Special thanks should be given to those people that helped to plan the
LSO Holiday Luncheon. Many people came, and there was no shortage of fun or
good food. The people on the LSO Social Committee are : Judy Eugate, Barb
Gardner, Kim Stinnett, Mary Geyer, Patty Powell, Patty Hornback, Kerry Kresse,
Joyce Welch and Jennifer Geran. Patty Hornback receives an honorable mention
for her musical expertise as the composer of the adaptation of the "Twelve
Days of Christmas." _
A major obligation for those who receive journals in the Journal Routing
Service is to dispatch the journal within THREE DAYS OF RECEIPT. There have
been some complaints recently concerning non—adherence to this policy.
If you receive a journal and know that you cannot dispatch it within
three days, send it on to the next person on the list. You can put a note on
the routing slip to have the journal returned to you after the last person on
the list has seen it. Also, do not cross_through your name.
I As you can easily see, the value of this service is greatly diminished if
this policy is not followed. Thank you for your cooperation. (Submitted by

The Acquisitions Department consists of two units, Order Processing and
Accounting, which perform a variety of functions including preorder
bibliographic searching, online ordering, tracking of outstanding orders,
receipt of monographs (serials are received by CSR), and invoice approval and
l payment.
Since Fall of 1985, Acquisitions has been without a department head (the
only professional position in the department). We will continue to endure
this situation until the 1987-1988 fiscal year. During this time, the
Acquisitions unit heads, Joyce Taylor in Accounting and Joyce Welch in Order
Processing, will be in charge of all day—to—day operations. Gail Kennedy,
Assistant Director for Technical Services, will serve as interim Head of
Acquisition when the need arises for decisions at this level.
The Order Processing Unit consists of 7 full-time staff and 4 student
assistants. The are: Joyce Welch, Unit Supervisor, Karen Jefferson, Sharon
Neikirk, Barbara Randolph, Kim Stinnett, and Ron Weber. The Order Processing
Unit is broken down into two sections.
The Searching Section has 3 staff and 2 students. The University of
` Kentucky Acquisition Recommendation Form is a two—part form available from
Acquisitions for ordering. The Recommendation forms are submitted to the
Acquisitions Department with the approval of the library liaison. When
e. Code proper vendor and process order through OCLC The orders are received,
the orders are divided by Rggh, Form Selections, and Regular Monographs. All
serials, sets, and cat—as—mono's (monographs in series) are pulled and given
to the serials searcher. All incoming orders are counted and dated. Rush
orders are treated as priority items and are processed in the same day, if
possible. Form Selections are batched for speed and all regular monographs
are filed in folders by their agency fund code. One month's orders are
completed before starting a new month. The Searcher must: .
a. Establish the main entry for ordering.
b. Verify that the information given is accurate using available
bibliographic tools. .
c. Check all series in CSR, sets file and cat—as—mono file.
d. Check online acquisitions subsystem for duplication.
again counted and filed by agency. The completed orders and all "haves“
(orders for titles already owned by the library) are returned at the end of
each month. The Searching section receives approximately 20,000 order
requests a year.
The Receiving Section has 2 full-time staff and 2 students. We only
receive online monographs. All serials go through the Central Serials Records
Department. All Acquisitions mail distribution is done in this section.
Incoming materials are unpacked by our students, checked off the invoice for
proper shipment, information routing slips are placed inside each piece
G received and shelved for the full time staff. The materials are then taken to
the OCLC acquisitions subsystem for receipt. All information from the book

 and acquisitions online records are verified and then received by the router.
Printouts are made if needed, and books are divided in groups relfecting
whether they have LC cataloging, OCLC member cataloging or no cataloging M
online. The books are then stripped, counted and shelved in the Online
Cataloging Department by staff and students. Things of not always run
l l smoothly, so all problem invoices, returns, claiming, cancellations, reports
and correspondence are processed in this section. Form selections and Choice
cards are sorted and routed to the selectors. This sections averages about
1200 titles monthly.
The Qat;as~Monomandmgggsmgection is a subsection of Receiving. One
staff member is responsible for the entire operation. Materials are unpacked
and checked—in on the proper Kardex cards, recorded as received online,
invoices processed for payment, and materials stripped, counted and routed.
All claims, cancellations, returns, reports, problem materials and invoices
are processed in this section. The quantity does not compare with monographs
but the system is very complex so accuracy is more important fr‘ proper record
keeping and control.
Our goals are to accurately and efficiently serve the needs of the
Library, Faculty and Students. _
MEET THE ACCOUQTl§§_Q§lT (by Joyce Taylor)
The Accounting Unit is part of the Acquisitions Department located on the
third floor of King North. The unit is composed of two full—time staff
members and approximately 50 hours of student help per week. We are
` responsible for the book budget and the restricted accounts which are for book
purchases. This includes the Agriculture, Biological Sciences and Law
Libraries as well as King Library. '
Our aim is to accurately and efficiently process invoices for payment
through the university’s system as well as the Acquisitions in—house
accounting system. Last fiscal year our main book budget was $2,181,696. We
paid approximately 2l,l30 single titles online and spent $1,267,227 on serial
titles. The llbrary's commercial binding bills are paid through us also. We
process approximately 7020 payment documents. These documents are typed
Our in~house accounting system has changed dramatically over the years. V
In the sixties and through the early seventies we used an NCR posting machine.
This gave us very simple and limited financial reports. In the mid seventies
we went on BATAB (Baker and Taylor Company), an automated system. It produced l
elaborate financial reports, but it was a batch system and soon outdated.  
Then, in the early eighties we obtained the 0CLC Acquisitions online system. j
This system is much faster, but does have some disadvantages concerning the l
accounting module. Hopefully, these particular shortcomings will be addressed E
in the new ACQBSO subsystem. We are scheduled for this in the next year or 5
q so. `
The past year the university changed accounting systems. This not only I
affected the main campus, but community colleges as well. We implemented
different procedures internally to comply with the university's new system.
We did experience some difficulties in processing some of our invoices for
payment. As with any new system, the first year gets the bugs out.
Hopefully, this year will be much better.
We recently prepaid for the publication Awmgartially Annotated

 ( Bibliography of the Clarinet by John R. Snyder. When the material arrived we
also received the following note, which I would like to share with you.
"Paid in full with purchase order. Books have been shipped on
_ this date via insured post. I never thought I would live long
enough to see the day when an educational institution paid for
something in advancellll Especially when I informed you that the
price was higher than what you had originally planned. Evidently
the University of Kentucky Library is better organized and has
more common sense than any other I have dealt with, including New
_ York Public, Library of Congress, etc. My sincere thanks for
consideration of my time and income, and for your professional
attitude vis—a—vis purchasing." Signed John R. Snyder.
