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.
