[Evergreen-general] E-resources acq

Most of our libraries that purchase electronic resources use Direct Charges
to account for individual purchased e-resource titles and subscription
costs. We have one library that loads a brief temporary record through
Load MARC Order Records to create a purchase order with line items. They
also choose to load a copy into the catalog so their students and faculty
can see what is coming. They delete the copy when the full record with the
e-resource link has been loaded into the catalog. Batch loading of
e-resource records is done by central site outside of acquisitions after
some preprocessing in MarcEdit. A library may retrieve individual purchased
titles from OCLC using Z39.50 if they choose.
Hope this helps,
