Oct: Best Practices in Weeding Library Collections (Booklist)

October 3 (11am-12pm PST)

Weeding library collections can be a tricky task. What stays? What goes? Following the successful weeding webinar “Weeding: The Basics and Beyond,” Booklist Reference and Collection Management editor Rebecca Vnuk will discuss various pitfalls to avoid, and how to manage public perception. She’ll be joined by Lindsey Dorfman, Director of Youth Services, Lisle (IL) Library District, who will show some before-and-after shots of a recent weeding project, and Nancy Kerr, Valencia Branch Manager, City of Santa Clarita (CA) Public Library, who will talk about weeding in adult collections.
