Acquisitions

The highly customizable EOS.Web Acquisitions module tracks and processes the purchasing of library materials through ordering, claiming, receiving, and invoicing.

Simplifies Acquisitions Workflow Tasks

EOS.Web Acquisitions has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that makes ordering and tracking purchases of items manageable, even for multi-institutional and multi-fund, shared acquisitions.

An interactive, integrated record structure provides for transactions in one record to automatically be updated in all EOS.Web modules, thus simplifying acquisitioning workflows. For example, when an item is recorded as received, vendor statistics, holdings, and financial files are automatically updated, including when item record changes are made.

Manage Detailed Acquisitions Tasks

Tasks for acquisitions such as online periodicals, online journals, law reports, maps, video, and audio are automated for you.

Tasks such as:

  • pre-order searching
  • ordering
  • claiming
  • cancellation
  • payment
  • invoicing
  • fund accounting
  • vendor accounting
  • currency control
  • statistics
  • and report compilation.

Fund Account File

The Fund Account file is updated automatically to indicate file encumbrances and debits as a result of actions on the acquisition file. At a glance, you’ll see amount budgeted, amount encumbered, amount expended, uncommitted balance, balance from previous year, encumbrances carried from previous year, cash balance, and supplementary budget appropriations.
