Registration is now open for the Amigos Library Services webinar “Let It Go: Weeding Your Library’s Collection”. This webinar will take place on Tuesday, July 27, and Wednesday, July 28, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM CDT both days.

It’s no secret that information professionals have strong opinions when it comes to weeding, but weeding your library’s collection is a vital piece of collection development. Removing an item from the library is often difficult, but weeding can make your collection more accessible and more attractive to your patrons. Attendees will learn about techniques for collection assessment, including how to establish evaluation criteria that fits your library, how to develop sound weeding policies, best practices and techniques for weeding your collection, and how to communicate about the process to your staff and patrons.

The cost for Amigos individual members to attend is $165.00, and the cost for non-members is $220.00

Registration closes Friday, July 23. To register, please go here.

The full upcoming training schedule is available here.
