Weeding

Just like your garden, weeding is essential for a flourishing library. We have some links to weeding quidelines and reports that will help make weeding a breeze!

On the INFOhio website under Library Staff > Automation, you’ll see some links to information on guidelines for weeding.

Did you know the Shelflist Report can help too? Look in the Workflows Handbook under Favorite Reports > Database Cleanup > Weeding. This document will show you how to create a spreadsheet containing last checkout date, total number of checkouts, and publication date of collections you choose. Sort the columns as desired when it's open in Excel.  At a glance you’ll be able to see items that have just sat on the shelf and collected dust for years!
