In this book, first published in 1986, experts from the various specialties describe the weeding process in corporate, academic, and university libraries. Factors affecting the weeding of materials - lack of space, a desire to place materials in a more suitable library, changing goals of the library - are explored. Discussions concerning the choices for the disposal of items are insightful and innovative.
