Weeding the Archaic Collection

Program Description

Do you have stone tablets in your library? Are your shelves overflowing with old, mucky, pointless books or media you can’t play anymore? Do you not have any of the inventory modules, Decision Center, MyLibrary!, or Mobile Worklists, or the resources to purchase them? Let us show you how, after 65 years of not weeding, we are systematically tackling the entire collection to make room for new materials using create lists and other standard tools to make the job manageable. We’ll discuss working with subject librarians/selectors to streamlining workflows to efficient and ethical removal of materials.
