The workflow diagrams found on this page have been created as a tool to document and examine Serials Unit processes within Acquisitions & Discovery. The diagrams are always subject to change, and the most recent available version will be found at this space.
The process used to design these diagrams is described here: workflow mapping procedures.
The style guide used for these diagrams can be downloaded here (in Visio format) and is filled on the G drive under G:\Acquisitions & Discovery\Department Administration\Workflows\Workflow Style Guide_FINAL.vsd
