If they're too old for you to keep on the shelves, why are they suitable
for selling?

Subject: Stock disposal

Hi list-folk!


***Apologies for cross posting***


Could anybody help me out with a query please?


Does anyone know of the legal position around the disposal of weeded
stock items? We currently make these items available in a book sale for
our users which is stated in our collection management policy.


With the absence of any current Trust led guidance on this any input
would be helpful. I will summarise responses for the list if required.


Thanking you in advance
