Weeding is the unglamorous side of the ""library selection"" coin, yet for vibrant, quality collections, it is critically important. To make weeding part of a library's ongoing procedures, it's best to do it in manageable doses. Now, school and children's librarians nationwide can reap the benefit of Florida's popular ""Weed of the Month"" program. This user-friendly guide: explains the ins and outs, including why weeding is such an important task; outlines the steps to get started; breaks weeding criteria down by over 70 topics and Dewey numbers so the task isn't overwhelming; clarifies how to use automation tools in weeding; and, suggests newer titles as replacements to upgrade collections.
