As library purchases for their collections move to predominantly electronic and patron-driven, acquisitions staffing has been changing to meet demands of fast paced and more complex workflows. For large academic institutions with legacy print collections, this change has not been a seamless or simple transition away from print to electronic. Unique print and patron-driven acquisitions have required complex management and staffing needs similar to those of e-resources. This presentation summarizes the process and assessment of addressing these staffing
needs by hiring all new or vacant entry level library assistant staff positions as shared assignments.
