There can be no doubt that this is a time of great change for libraries and librarians, particularly those in technical services. The management and business literature surrounding the topics of management and change has much to suggest and recommend to acquisitions managers struggling with rapid change. This literature can provide some insights into how those management theories and solutions can be applied to acquisitions. Three concerns are addressed here: What are the essential elements of change? How do acquisitions managers lead in this environment, particularly with those who report to them? How do acquisitions librarians cope with change?
