Engaging Community in the Weeding Process

(May 15, 2015). Campus-wide review. S15-10, University Policy, Revisions to SJSU Library Policy ( Retrieved from

When I popped on to the SJSU King Library website this morning, I noticed an interesting post that pertains directly to our class.  Last year, SJSU Library Policy was updated to reflect a new communication method that encourages campus-wide involvement in collection management procedures.  Most recently, the Accounting and Finance department has devised a list of items set to be discarded which the Liaison Librarian has put out to the campus community for review.  Instructions are to review the Google document of titles and freely make comments where appropriate using a separate form.  This is a good example of a library policy which values the input of patrons in developing a collection of the highest quality and relevance.
