PERSONAL PURCHASES OF BOOKS AND/OR AV MATERIALS POLICY
Permanent staff of the Albemarle Regional Library System as well as Trustees will be permitted to place orders for books and audiovisual materials, but not periodicals, through vendors currently being used by the library. Orders are to be processed independently of the Polaris acquisitions module. Materials will be ordered at the convenience of the technical services staff responsible for this process.
Within five days of receipt of the item(s), staff/Trustees will pay the purchase price plus shipping and handling. All personal checks are made payable to the Albemarle Regional Library. The revenue posting to staff purchases will offset the expenditure posting to staff purchases.
Abuse of this procedure will result in loss of this privilege.
Adopted by the Albemarle Regional Library Board of Trustees, October 27, 2004
