Margaret Kleszynski, Associate Professor and Collection Development Librarian, presented a workshop at the the 100th Anniversary PNLA (Pacific Northwest Library Association) Conference in Missoula, Montana August 5-7. The conference theme was “PNLA 1909-2009: A Century of Cooperation, A Legacy of Leadership”, and her workshop title was “Our Library Building is Being Renovated at Last: Now We Have to Weed!”

Margaret described the challenges library staff faced during a major weeding project driven by the library’s need to prepare for the building renovation, including how guidelines were created to help the weeding team ( assisted by the entire Library Staff), and the deselecting of items based on both subjective and objective assessment of the collections. Program goals or objectives highlighted were presenting the guidelines for deselection, describing the project in sequential stages, presenting alternatives for discarding books considering environmental impact, cost, obeying rules of state property, and detailing how the project was completed successfully by the library staff working as a team. Congratulations, Margaret!
