Document selection - library management system, Other Management

DOCUMENT SELECTION:

You have seen that acquisition work includes three distinct phases of activities. Document selection is the first phase. There are two aspects in document selection, namely, planning and procedure. 

Planning 

Planning here relates to the various preparations and arrangements you have to make to carry out the procedure efficiently. Book selection is conditioned by three factors: demand, supply and finance. Planning, therefore, must be  mainly concerned with these factors. Demand and supply must be known, and finance secured. Further; men and materials required for the work need  to be arranged. Echoing similar views, Ranganathan suggest that the distinctive  work of Document Selection is to be planned with reference' to the following four factor: Sources, Selection, Indent and Finance. We shall examine below these aspects of planning under four heads, namely 

Ascertaining demand 

Finding resources 

Allocating funds 

Arranging personnel.
