Materials Selection Policy.
Tulsa City-County Library System, OK.
The emphasis of the revised Tulsa (Oklahoma) City-County Library System selection policy is on meeting needs of the community rather than balancing the collection in any one library. The policy includes the "Library Bill of Rights" and covers objectives, responsibilities, maintenance of the collection, controversial materials, gifts, policy in general, as well as specific policies in regard to the central library, regional library, branch and community libraries, materials for special service areas, rotating collections, government documents, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, art and other prints, audio materials, films, filmstrips, slides, videotapes, and centralized processing. The appendix includes a statement of the library's purpose; job descriptions for coordinators of children's services and of resources; guidelines for weeding, discarding, storage, replacement, and rebinding; a list of selection aids; and examples of forms for suggestions, book reconsideration, gift plates, and film evaluation.
