Decision-Making in the Selection of Science Library Materials for Higher Education: Empirical Findings and Guidelines.
Farina, Alfred J.; Snyder, Monroe B.
The project which resulted in this report was a study of decision making in the selection of science library materials in college and university libraries. Questionnaires, interviews and objective collection descriptions were used to collect information in the fields of chemistry, physics and biology. Part I is an analytic description of the selection decision-making process; Part II contains guidelines for institutions, designed to improve decision-making methods; Appendix A provides aids and forms for local data collection to assist the librarian in analyzing his local selection processes and user requirements; and Appendix B contains supporting technical data. A summary of thirty-four conclusions selected from the report highlights the more pertinent and interesting findings of the study. (AB)
