Join Jami Trenam and Jill Smith for a conversation about Weeding in the Library. These library leaders will share their knowledge and experience with weeding library collections.

Explore the art and science behind weeding library collections. Gain insights into different criteria and methodologies used to evaluate materials, keep collections engaging, up-to-date, and aligned with the ever-changing needs of the community. Learn about the challenges librarians face in making these decisions while balancing diverse perspectives and preserving intellectual freedom.

This conversation will use guided questions to engage the audience throughout the hour. Whether you are a seasoned librarian or an aspiring information professional, this conversation welcomes your participation. Bring your real-life case studies, share successful weeding strategies, and lessons learned from past experiences.

We will equip you with the knowledge and tools to approach weeding with confidence, embracing it as an integral part of collection development and maintenance. Join us as we cultivate a deeper understanding of weeding library collections!
