The Christian Librarian
Selection is not only the first step if! libraria1lship, it is also the first application of the philosophy of librarianship. Before anything call be searched and accessed in a library, it must be selected by that library. But the process of selection requires a selection policy~- whether or not it is written. A written selection policy would help in sure consistency in the selection process, but whether it is written or 1I0t, one who selects resources for a library does follow some policy. And this policy is shaped by the selector's philosophy of librarianship.
