Make Shift Happen: weeding the physical collection

Make Shift Happen: weeding the physical collection

Weeding is fundamental to collection management, and one of the most commonly neglected professional responsibilities we hold as the stewards of our community's information. There are many good reasons to weed, but there are a lot of opportunities to defer the task. With humor and energy, we will explore the history of weeding in our profession and how well weeded collections benefit the patrons and the staff. We'll examine professional standards and tools to help you plan and conduct your weeding project with confidence and clarity. This class is recommended for those new to weeding practices, reluctant weeders, and experienced weeders who would like to get excited about weeding again.
