Authors:Thoulag, Jean

Date Issued:04 Dec 2015
Abstract:Do you need to conduct a collection assessment and weeding project in order to create more open space? Come learn how the Sinclair Library 2nd-Floor Collection Assessment Project gathered data and created a climate of collaboration to address this challenge. We worked across several departments, with subject specialist librarians and staff in two UH Manoa libraries, to meet our goal of inventorying and assessing approximately 32,000 linear feet of journals and serials. We will share tips about the management plan, data documentation tools, and communication strategies we used to survey 17,000 titles and withdraw more than 3,500.
