Gov Docs be GONE: Decision Making and Workflow Considerations for Weeding
Tuesday, October 11, 2022 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm Eastern
Weeding a physical government documents collection presents opportunities to refine workflows and improve decision making that will, ultimately, result in a collection that reflects the values and mission of the organization. Join staff from the NC State University Libraries as they discuss their ongoing weeding project for their selective depository. This webinar will provide more information on how weeding decisions were made; the workflows from a collection manager, technical services, and a stacks maintenance perspective; unexpected things that happened along the way; as well as the hidden labor and logistics of the physical disposition of government documents. If you are interested in learning how one academic library is managing the weeding process or would like inspiration on weeding your own government documents collection, this session is for you.
