10:00 AM - 11:15 AM Eastern
Collection Management
Event Description
We all know that weeding is a necessary part of maintaining a healthy and useful library collection. But when it comes right down to it, the process isn’t as easy as it sounds. Should a book be pulled just because it hasn’t circulated in a year? What if some of the information is still okay? And when will we find the time? Besides, if we pulled every book that should be weeded the shelves would be bare!  (The 75-minute presentation time includes 15 minutes for Q&A.)
Learning Objectives:
  • Learn effective weeding strategies
  • Learn tips for overcoming the biggest obstacles—time, money and bad PR

Belinda Boon is a Professor at Kent State University’s School of Information where she has taught since 2006. Her graduate and undergraduate courses include Collection Management, Information Services for Diverse Populations, Information Sources & Reference Services, and Information Fluency in the Workplace and Beyond.
