Responsibility For Selection

The Librarian is charged with the responsibility of selecting materials for the Library’s collection. Selection decisions are based upon the Library’s general, format, and subject-specific selection criteria.

The Librarian may receive input on selection from the Little Big Horn College faculty, staff, students, and other personnel, as well as from members of the community (see Library Purchase Request Form).

The Librarian also draws upon review sources, publishers, vendors, and similar sources for selection suggestions. However, the primary source for decision-making is a vendor-approved plan.
