2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These guidelines for weeding library media collections are addressed to elementary and secondary school library media centers and to community college and vocational school library resource centers in Iowa. The publication includes some philosophy about weeding, and specific guidelines are summarized in bold-faced type for ease of use. The publication is designed to provide guidance for those who want weeding of all formats of materials (not just print materials) to become an integral part of their selection-acquisition-use-discard cycle. A summary of past departmental policy statements and planning procedures dealing with library collection weeding is followed by topical sections on: why, when, and how to weed, subjective and objective weeding criteria, weeding guidance for print and nonprint collections in schools and community colleges, and how to discard. A 20-item list of sources and flow-charts of steps in both the objective and subjective weeding processes are appended. (Thc)
