CCLC Ebook Weeding Project Featured in ALA Podcast
By Brian Greene, Columbia College
Many of you are familiar with the NetLibrary/EBSCO ebook collections and the weeding effort that the CCL-EAR Committee spearheaded between 2013 and 2016. Through that process 3,274 titles (~12% of the collection) were removed, a process that was documented in a College & Research Library News article published last year by Tamara Weintraub (Palomar), Glorian Sipman (MiraCosta) and Brian Greene (Columbia).
Last month the authors were contacted by Phil Morehart, senior editor at American Libraries and host of Dewey Decibel (a podcast series about libraries), about sharing our experience on the podcast. Tune in to episode 36, Spring Cleaning: Weeding Your Collections to hear co-author Brian Greene describe the project and share tips for similar weeding endeavors.
