Weeding

Back in October I participated on a panel on weeding (one of my FAVORITE library topics!) with the fabulous ladies from AwfulLibraryBooks.net.

Ruth over at Artifact Collectors has posted a great interview with Holly Hibner of ALB, and there is some useful information about the weeding process and collection development in general.  Take a look at it!

 
As a side note, I am absolutely dying over this recent book posted on ALB.  Really??  The most shocking thing is the copyright date of 1991. Ai yi yi.  I’ve seen some pretty awful books myself in my day…this one ranks pretty high.
