Collection Weeding: Breaking New Ground with Innovative Processes and Tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Collection evaluation, or weeding, is about as popular as, well, real weeding. Unfortunately there isn’t a Library Roundup®-type technology that will make the job easy. BYU science librarians completed a major print collection evaluation project and will discuss essential library-wide collaborations, deselection criteria, innovative project management tools, a novel patron feedback process, and finally, lessons learned.
