Select the Order button on the vertical toolbar in the Millennium Acquisitions module. Search for the title or by control number (OCLC number). Once the record is displayed, compare order information to bibliographic record for:

  • 001 Bib Utility No. (OCLC Control No.)
  • 020 ISBN (if available)
  • 100 Author (if available)
  • 245 Title and Editor (if no author)
  • 260 Publisher and Pub Date

If all of the information matches, click on the Summary button. In the View drop down menu, select order and click Attach New Order. Follow the prompts, entering price, fund, vendor, and initials. After the order is created, click Save and go back to Browse. Repeat process for further orders.
