Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

While the library literature had some studies devoted to book selection in academic and public libraries, there were very few studies which had been devoted to book selection in public school libraries. Firstly, very little research seemed available on factors which influence selection. For example, was the publisher's reputation a more critical factor in selection than was the author's reputation? Was a favorable book review a more critical factor in selection than was a faculty recommendation? Was there one selection factor which seemed more important than any other one in influencing selection decisions?
