Wetherbee, James M.
This document is a statement of guidelines for the collection of reference materials at the Ethel K. Smith Library in Wingate University (North Carolina). The library's mission statement is given at the outset. Then parameters are established for the reference collection's scope and size, including subject-area and media priorities. The statement also outlines organizational responsibilities and techniques for selection, withdrawal, and collection evaluation. Specific directions are given for the selection and retention of several types of sources, which are ordered alphabetically from "almanacs" to "vertical files." A matrix which visually expresses selection criteria is appended. (BEW)
