Weeding Is Not Just for Gardeners: A Case Study on Weeding a Reference Collection
Lee, Marta
Community & Junior College Libraries, v15 n3 p129-135 2009
Weeding a reference collection can be time consuming, a thankless job, and an endless task. It is a dusty job and can add to the librarian's workload. Weeding the collection can add to its currency and usability; plus it removes outdated materials. Periodically weeding allows librarians to remember what is in the collection and what can be removed due to curriculum changes.
