IIAC: Library Materials/Selection and Adoption

I: Instructional

The same statement of policy and the same objectives and criteria adopted by the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) for selection of learning resources (see policy IIA) shall apply to the selection of library materials. 

In order to maintain a current and useful collection of materials, teacher librarians and media specialists will provide for continual review and renewal of the collection, not only by addition of up-to-date resources but also by the judicious elimination of materials which no longer meet needs or find use. 

Gifts to the library may be accepted if they meet the criteria established for the selection of all learning resources. 

Purchasing Procedure for Library Books 

The Board has authorized a variance to its adopted purchasing procedures to permit continuation of a system whereby fully catalogued and processed library books are purchased from one selected Canadian supplier.
