Very helpful & practical suggestions on selecting books worthy of reading, on not selecting certain kinds of books, and on which books in a preacher's library he might actually consider getting rid of!
C. Richard Broome
A excellent article on library management. The acquisition triage is right on target, and the section on disposal should be memorized and practiced. Processor Anderson's point on continuing utility is especially pertinent in light of today's technological explosion. I am an octogenarian who used to say some thirty years ago, that if I were just starting out as a preacher, I would build my library with microfiche; today I would build it with computer programs and electronic texts. To paraphrase the thrust of the article, unless one's goal is "to impress or sometimes intimidate," why purchase a book with limited funds, read it (or parts of it) on limited time, then shelve it in relatively expensive space just to be dusted and occasionally moved or rearranged? A preacher really needs to give attention to library management. Having moved recently at my own expense in order to be nearer family and especially grandchildren, the per pound cost of moving books took its toll.
