Responsibility for Selection

The Assistant Director has operational responsibility for collection development. The Director allocates the materials budget, and insures that the collection is in conformity with the Materials Selection Policy. The entire professional staff is involved with selection. The Reference staff reads reviews and recommends book titles for purchase. Individual librarians have responsibility for parts of the collection, as outlined below. Additionally, professional staff have been assigned responsibility for weeding, replacement and augmentation.
