Selection is the decision to add or retain material as part of the library's collection. Selections should support the principles of the Policy for Library Materials Selection and be measurable by objective criteria. All materials, whether purchased by the library or donated to it, are evaluated in accordance with these criteria. Each item is evaluated on its significance as an entire work rather than upon the merit of individual parts. Selection decisions may be made upon one or a combination of criteria as applicable to the item in question. Criteria used by the Pierce County Library District to evaluate adult or children's materials to be selected for its collection include:
