A university library was out of space and needed more, preferably in the prime area of the first floor. The decision was made to de-select bound periodical titles which were taking up huge chunks of that space. This poster will explain the criteria used to de-select and how the actual de-selection was accomplished from start to finish.

Objectives/Learning outcomes:
1: Learn to apply needs analysis of bound periodicals collection
2: Learn to evaluate bound periodical collections using various criteria
3: Learn to de-select bound periodicals – the process from start to finish

We intend to include a QR code that will allow the audience to take the poster home with them, and hope that they will ask many questions that will help them with their weeding projects.
