I've been in acquisitions for over 23 years and I've never had a typical day. At any given time, I process requests for print, eBooks, DVDs, scores, as well as find streaming for film requests. My job depends on the needs of faculty for their courses and research. I could order 20 eBooks one day and then the next day only order 5 items, but process 10 streaming requests. I like the variety my job offers and the interaction I have with faculty and students.
