Following a collection weeding project of over 350,000 print items, Science and Engineering librarians at Brigham Young University conducted interviews with 20 library employees and 19 teaching faculty. Come and hear about the perspectives of these two groups and their opinions on the overall project’s successes and areas for improvement. You will learn how different stakeholders viewed the project and the impact that it had on them. These perspectives are critical to understand for anyone contemplating a substantial weeding project.

Learning objectives:
Attendees will understand how a weeding project was viewed by people in various academic roles
Attendees will be better prepared to address stakeholder concerns as they plan their own weeding project
