Creating an order

Orders contain a list of titles or packages (physical or electronic) being ordered by your library from a vendor.

In FOLIO, you can create either one-time orders or ongoing orders. One-time orders should be used for items fulfilled within the year, like monographs. Ongoing orders generally span multiple years, and you usually pay as you receive each item. You would want to create an ongoing order for a journal subscription, for example.

Once you create an order, you need to add at least one order line to the order so the order can be opened and the acquisitions process can begin. You can also initiate order creation from the Inventory app by searching for an instance and clicking Inventory > Actions > Create new order for more information.

For example, you may want to select “Receipt not required” for one-time e-resource orders so that the order will automatically close once invoice payment is complete. Otherwise, if your library doesn’t receive e-resources, a one-time e-resource order may be left open even after payment is complete which could impact your expected results during Fiscal Year rollover.
