Approval Plans

The Library has three ways of acquiring books and other materials:

  • by ordering them individually (a process we usually refer to as "firm ordering")
  • by subscription or standing order
  • by means of approval plans

Jackson Library uses YBP as its primary approval vendor. We also have an approval plan with Theodore Front covering printed music.
