The results of a survey of the New York Metropolitan Reference and Research Library Agency (METRO) and selected Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member-libraries concerning the selection tools they use the most frequently in acquiring new materials are tabulated in this guide. The categories covered by the survey are based on the Library of Congress Classification scheme. The 63 categories listed in the guide are arranged alphabetically, with current tools (i.e., periodicals) and books and miscellaneous tools listed separately for each subject category. The tabulations indicate the number of libraries responding for each category and the number of libraries which noted use of each tool listed. Also included are a list of participating ARL and New York Metropolitan libraries, a list of the Metropolitan Reference and Research Agency task force members who worked on the survey, and a list of the categories covered in the guide.
