WELCOME TO THE ACQUISITION SECTION:

LOCATION: 1ST Floor, Room No. M-7

The Acquisition Section collects the requests for books from the faculty; puts to the Library committee for their recommendation and after that getting approval of the Director places orders to selected suppliers, accessions the procured books and transfers them to the Technical Processing Section for classification, cataloguing, indexing and database entry.

BOOKS PROCURED:

REQUISITION FOR BOOKS:

Separate requisition forms for general and textbooks are available in the download menu. One may also access these forms from the library website. Faculty members who wish to recommend new books may please fill up and forward these requisition forms with their signature to Library for further process.

INFORMATION ABOUT NEW BOOKS:

The Section receives catalogues and brochures from various national and international publishers. Such materials are displayed to the faculty members. Interested users may also collect these catalogues from the Acquisition Section.

OUR MOTTO:

Our motto is to serve the Institute community by alerting them about new books in their areas of interest, seeking recommendations for such books, and taking appropriate action to procure these publications in the least possible time.

MODE OF BOOK SELECTION:

There are three modes of selecting books:
  1. The faculty members get to know about the books from such sources as journal articles, conference proceedings, brochures sent to them by publishers, and the Web. They send their requisitions to the Library in prescribed requisition forms and the Library decides the suppliers who are best suited to supply the books.
  2. Suppliers show copies of their books to the faculty members and the faculty members recommend some of these books for procurement to the Library.
  3. Through book exhibition conducted by Library time to time.

PLACING PURCHASE ORDERS:

The procedure for placing purchasing orders for book-fair and non-book-fair books is the same. Purchase proposals for the books selected by the department received by the NIFFT Library and purchase orders are placed to suitable book suppliers / publishing agencies after obtaining approval from the Director recommended by Library Committee. The steps in placing purchase order are given below.
