Weeding 101

Collection Management

Weeding, the withdrawal of materials from a library’s collection, is a necessary process of collection development. Some library professionals, however, may find the task of weeding daunting. Why should we weed? How often should we weed? What criteria should we use in making deselection decisions? This webinar will help to answer these questions and more by discussing the best practices of weeding a public library collection.
