    Creating a new acquisitions department

    • Product: Alma


    How can I create a new receiving / acquisitions department? When I edit the receiving operator role in user management I do not see a service unit for it for a specific library.


    At the time the library is created (for example during migration or at a later stage) the receiving / acquisitions department is typically automatically created. If for whatever reason the receiving / acquisitions department does not exist then you can do as follows:
    1. Alma Menu > General > General Configuration > Configuration Menu
    2. Select relevant library in “You are configuring”.

    3. Choose Work Order Departments
    4. Click Add department – of type Acquisition technical services
    5. Add the operator via the wizard – or via user management
