January = Winter Weeding

The new year, for me, is always the time I start my yearly weeding project. This year I intend to evaluate, weed and develop the nonfiction collection. Probably going to focus on the 000-799s (general knowledge – the arts, in Dewey) this year since the 800s and 900s are so massive. I love weeding for many reasons but especially because it’s another opportunity to collaborate with faculty, learn more about their curriculum and start planning for projects in the Spring or following year. Weeding helps reveal the hidden gems in our collection and gives me so many ideas for projects and displays. Maybe this will be the year we do Blind Date with a (nonfiction) Book or a PostSecret project.

What are you weeding this year?
