We get a large number of requests to add titles to library collections that do not have standard cataloging records.  Many of these are self-published.  Several requests are from local authors who may or may not have had their books edited or reviewed.  Do you accept the work of local authors when their work does not meet your selection criteria?  How do you deal with cataloging challenges of such titles?
