Arranging personnel - library management system, Other Management

Arranging Personnel:

Planning for  document  selection should also cover the personnel  or human factor. The people involved  in the selection process are the librarian, the acquisition staff, the subject experts and the library authority  or selection committee. The ultimate responsibility for book selection rests  with the librarian. The acquisition staff are there to help him. But, neither the librarian nor his staff are experts in all the different subjects. Therefore, it becomes necessary to take help from  subject specialists. The selection committee may or may not be composed of subject experts. Nevertheless, committee level decisions have the advantage of being more democratic and participatory. You must remember that document selection is not a one man job. It should be the outcome of good team work. Therefore, you must be very prudent in choosing the members of this team. This applies to both the acquisition staff and the subject experts. You need to maintain a panel of subject experts who will be willing to participate in the selection process by giving objective opinions and advice.
