English abstract

The concept of users participating in the selection of library materials has been around for some time but in recent years, with the introduction in the market by publishers of extensive eBook collections and the better technology for moving records from publishers' files to online catalogs, new opportunities for patron-based selection have emerged. This paper presents the results of a survey of academic librarians in the state of Illinois, USA done with the object of determining their professional perspectives about this kind of service. The results indicate that when used properly, participatory selecting models for patrons can support the overall collection development efforts, but they are not a substitute.
