Crumb Library Weeding Project 2012: 2012 Weeding Project

About the project

A team of librarians is evaluating all books held by Crumb Library that were published before 1950 and which have not circulated or been consulted in-house since before 2003. We are deciding between "keep" and "withdraw" for each item, considering curricular relevance and availability of online access as factors.

If you have questions about the project, please see the tab labeled "Faculty Announcement Email" for more details, or contact Jenica Rogers, Director of Libraries, or Marianne Hebert, Collection Development Coordinator.

The Process for Faculty Participation

  • Each week, the librarian team will post a file of books that have been evaluated for discard.
  • Interested faculty are invited to review each list.
  • Faculty feedback on the items on the list can be submitted via the feedback form linked below.
  • Each list will be available for review for two weeks, after which point the materials will be removed from BearCat, processed for discard, and sent to Better World Books.

The Feedback Form

The Weekly Lists

A new list will be added weekly for the remainder of the Fall semester, and all lists are removed after two weeks of review.

Better World Books

Better World Books is managing our online used book sale. Please expect four weeks turnaround between posting of weeding lists and books appearing on the Sidewalk Sale lists.
