Weeding Isn’t Sexy, But It Should Be
June 16, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT
Weeding is a lot like Fight Club…we don’t like to talk about it. As libraries evolve into community spaces that encourage creativity and participatory experiences, it becomes more and more imperative that the collections we have are an integral part of sparking curiosity. Old, dirty and outdated materials crammed tightly onto shelves is a practice more hoarder than librarian. It’s time to unleash your inner book snob.
Don’t know where to start? Join us for this interactive webinar to gain confidence in building a strong and popular collection that encourages visibility and promotes serendipitous discovery at your library.
Note: To get the most out of this session, please bring 3-5 books to your desk in order to practice evaluating during this webinar.
