A model for core-collection development appropriate for large and medium-sized research libraries is proposed. A strategy of mechanical selection is suggested that will ensure the quality of core selection as well as release selectors from the burden of core selection so they might spend more time identifying difficult materials
The authors would like to acknowledge the assistance of Robert S. Baker, Information Analyst at Oregon State University, in creating the illustrations for figures 1 and 2.
