Weeding the Library Collection: Our Current Process

A guide to the weeding project at Loras College Library.

Our Current Process, Spring 2014

  • Librarians are willing to work with faculty from each of the programs to develop the criteria which the librarians will use for weeding. (March-May 2014)
  • We will only be looking at materials that have not circulated since 1994 when the library went online with our current catalog. 
  • Librarians will review all books after they are pulled from the shelves and before they are actually withdrawn from the collection. (June-August 2014 and beyond)

Collection overview/review is one of those things that librarians learn about in our Masters education programs and practice on a regular basis.  Although the process is not infallible, we're willing to work to correct any weeding errors.
