All of us know how difficult it is to procure books from foreign publishers, particularly when you need them quickly (always!)

At GE Bangalore, we have the following book procurement practice in place. Our priority is delivery time.

We have tied-up with selected few book sellers with the following terms and conditions to procure foreign books. 
	
	- Delivery time 30 days (maximum)
	- Discount 20%
	- Payment within 2 weeks
	- Conversion as per GOC rates

In special cases, when we require books urgently, we pay actual courier charge (against proof) to the suppliers but he needs to deliver the book within 7 days. Discount and payment terms remain the same.

Actually, we end up buying 20% of our books from online book stores, like amazon, due to urgent timelines. 

I feel,  how nice if amazon can offer some discount to libraries & deliver the books with free of shipment charges!

Dear All,

I remember correctly about going thru' the same discussion last year
also. It is a good platform to become aware of various practices in our
field, touching different aspects.

On this issue of GOC, can we come to any common giudeline?
The example given by Mrs. Nirupama Bawdekar is self explanatory.

With regards to all,

      J R D Tata Memorial Library, at Indian Institute of Science,
Bangalore is also following the same procedure as NCL by sending the list
of books published by foreign publishers that we want to procure asking
them to quote the rate of discount and also the possible time of delivery.
Whoever gives the highest discount (it ranges from 21% to 34%) , orders
will be placed with those vendors. And also the vendors delivers the book
with the price proof and we also verify the price by visiting publishers'
websites and we are paying them Bank Rate (SBI) prevailing
on the date of billing. By this procedure, our library is saving quite a
good amount by way of discount, which we are using to update our
Reference collection.

One option that we have been using is to send the list of books that we want
to few vendors and ask them to indicate the best possible discount and the
time period of delivery. Our terms - payment against bill (no advance
payment), bank rate on the date of the bill. We have been able to get
discounts ranging from 20% to 30%

Regarding database of suppliers and the publishers they represent, I would
like to inform , that British library has published such online directory,
for British publishers.

The directory published by National Book Trust during World Bookfair, 2004
has listed all the suppliers, who participated in the fair, along with the
names of publishers they represent.

Many publishers from US are not represented in India. I wonder whether
there is any supplier to import books published by ALA. If there are no
authorised stockists or representatives, then postage will be too high as
mentioned by Mr.Chandra. Barnes and Noble, whom I met recently in US are
willing to supply books to Indian libraries if the business offered is US
$5000/- per year. They also offer about 20% discount.

We at IGIDR have prepared database of suppliers in the area of social
sciencs. The data can be provided in ISO2709  format for those who are
interested.

I think this theme is an very important one as it has to be examined in
the digital environment. Curriculum development, practical training in
knowledge management database creation, etc are required

Dear professionals,

I think, some of professional associations or society should take the
initiative to design & develop the compressive databases/search engines
which have the linkage with all major foreign publications. The databases
could have the alert feature means as & when any publisher update their
website, immediately the alert service inform their client libraries.

In regard of exchange rate, I think the GOC rate is ok but Good offices
Committee also should change their system and try to update themselves
with help and associate with the Banks, Libraries Associations and other
relevant societies.

The second largest library of India took 8 years and over 200 crores to
build. How many regular users are there? How many Staffs are working?
Collection of the library and all these you'll find in an article
published in Outlook July 12 issue. Title of this article is "NO DOG-EARS
HERE" by Sheela Reddy.

Below is the link of  online version.

If you want to buy one title and are bothered about high freight and
service charges, my suggestion is - abandon your local mortar and brick
vendor and buy the book from a online vendor, how about amazon ?

Regards.

Dear Mr. Sadasivan

Thanks for your e mail. In my opinion it is not proper that the Downloading
should be treated as an Indicator of the quality of Papers. also it is not
clear from the attached list which are the the second and third highest
downloaded papers that have been authored by the scientists of your
lab.however, a final decision about their quality can be taken only after a
citation study of these papers. I may mention that of the 50 papers listed
in the site you have refered 14 are review articles, which are cited more
frequently than other articles.
if you have any other query, pl. feel free to contact.
regards
