Policy 7.2.4 - Selection of Materials

The selection of materials involves many people – students, faculty, staff, administrators and library professionals. The responsibility for coordinating the selection of instructional materials and making the recommendations for purchase rests with the professionally trained library personnel. The librarian has the specific responsibility for evaluating the existing library collection and using reports of reputable, unbiased, professionally prepared evaluations to assist in selection of new materials. If controversy arises concerning an item to be purchased or the priority of an item, the Information Services Team will make a purchasing recommendation.
