The quality and usefulness of a college library collection depends upon systematic, deliberate collection development as well as maintenance. Not only must we preserve what is of long lasting value, we must also weed or deselect books and other library materials that we deem obsolete or that no longer support the curriculum of the college or the mission of the library.
GUIDELINES FOR WEEDING & DESELECTION
The Director of Library Services and the library staff will identify materials to be reviewed for removal from the library collection. The Director of Library Services will consult with appropriate members of the faculty before cancelling journals and before weeding books falling under the guidelines as cited.
