This paper describes the selection process of 17 articles for inclusion in the book, "Classic Writings on Instructional Technology." The book brings together original "classic" educational technology articles into one volume to document the history of the field through its literature. It is also an attempt to make available articles that traditionally have been difficult to obtain. The final selection of articles, all considered the "core" of the literature and all published in the United States, represents a combination of the compilers' personal favorites, the votes of professional colleagues, and the input of students who will be the intended audience. Each article is representative of the contribution made to the field of educational technology. A table of contents lists the articles contained in the book, organized by the following headings: (1) Definition and Conceptual Background; (2) Design and Development Functions; (3) Delivery Options; and (4) The Profession.
