  3. “faculty selection leads to major problems: the wrong books selected because of lack of time, unbalanced collections, and a tendency to overbuy in periodicals, among others. Who, then should select?” (Ryland, 1982) Librarian or Academic? “it is the academic staff who are expected to have the greatest input in the selection process. The assumption is that academic staff, as experts in their discipline are also experts in the most suitable literature in these disciplines for their library’s collections.” (Gorman & Kennedy, 1992)
