The Weeding Handbook
A Shelf-by-shelf GuideBook - 2015
The very word can throw terror into a librarian's heart, but "weeding" is an essential part of a balanced collection maintenance program. Vnuk shows that, since a library is an ever-changing organism, weeding can help it to thrive. She stresses the importance of looking at each section as a separate entity with its own requirements, and that each library must generate standards to condition and shelf space based on their own needs.
