Managing a Large-Scale Depository Weeding Project

February 27, 2024 2:00pm to 3:00pm Eastern

When University of Illinois Chicago decided to sell the warehouse used for offsite storage of depository material, Benjamin Aldred was faced with a problem, 4000 shelf feet of partially cataloged depository material, a ticking clock, and very little space on site. To address this, he developed a complex workflow that utilized google forms and FDLP eXchange and was able to ship several hundred boxes of material to our regional library and help several preservation stewards fill gaps in collections. This presentation will share the planning process as well as some of the lessons learned along the way.

Benjamin Aldred is an Assistant Professor and Reference Librarian at the University of Illinois Chicago and Chair of ALA’s Government Documents Round Table .
