Schwartz, Charles A.
College and Research Libraries, v50 n3 p328-43 May 1989
Reviews previously proposed schemes of classical rationality in book selection, describes new approaches to rational choice behavior, and presents a model of book selection based on bounded rationality in a garbage can decision process. The role of tacit knowledge and symbolic content in the selection process are also discussed. (102 references) (CLB)
