Apr: Weeding: The Plan (Florida Libraries)

Date/Time Date(s) - 04/10/2014 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm 

“Weeding” in library circles is often a dirty word.  Why would we want to get rid of anything?  Or maybe you have experienced a backlash or resistance from the community, persistent patrons, your board, your staff, or even yourself.  How we approach the task is as important as how we carry it out. Preparation, publicity, timing, mindset, and creating your strategy all figure in the first steps of de-selection.

After this webinar participants will:

    Understand how weeding fits into the larger scheme of collection management
    Understand more fully the need for de-selection of materials and the reasons for resistance to weeding
    Understand the need for transparency and working with public relations in relation to weeding
    Be able to get started on a strategic plan for weeding in their library
