To anyone who works in a University Special Collections and Archives who has to deal with books!
We are planning on undertaking some weeding of our Special Collections books this summer and in doing so are hoping to come up with some criteria for what we do and do not keep in Special Collections in future. There doesn’t seem to have
been much of a strategy here in the past, aside from the book collections that are related to our archive collections.
Having not really had to deal with books before, I was wondering if anyone else has criteria or policies for books that they keep in their Special Collections that they wouldn’t mind sharing with me so I have somewhere to start from?
