||Gregory examines the processes that librarians need to use in evaluating, gathering, maintaining, and preserving materials. Each chapter covers multiple formats, but the overall processes used to select and evaluate those materials is essentially the same. Where appropriate, she details differences due to the type of library-- public, school media centers, and so forth. Gregory also examines legal issues, not just of copyright and licensing, but also of diversity, disability, and special needs issues -- adapted from preface
