Bill Martin25 July 2018

I would like to confirm some of the details for how to use our new book vendors.

Guidelines for how to choose a vendor are now available on the ‘Purchasing materials’ page of Libnet:
https://www.ucl.ac.uk/libnet/procedures/collections/purchase-books

The document is called: “Book purchasing using the SUPC Books Purchasing Framework

These guidelines are for everyone involved in book buying. Please send any questions about the framework and guidelines to me.  My email address is bill.martin@ucl.ac.uk.

For queries about English Language worldwide books, please contact Titilola Ogunsowon. Her email address is t.ogunsowon@ucl.ac.uk.

For queries about buying books from European countries, please contact Ann Smith. Her email address is ann.smith@ucl.ac.uk.

This guide explains how the SUPC framework will make book buying easier.

It sets out the expected supply times and service standards we expect from our vendors. It also details the discounts and service charges we can expect from each vendor.

The guide gives advice on how and when to choose non-framework vendors.
