Out with the Old. In with the New.
In early July, members of the Bible faculty, Drs. Richardson and Matson, collaborated with Library staff to "weed" the Bible commentary section. Almost 10% of the collection was removed, leaving room for more up-to-date and relevant materials for student research papers. Discarded books were shipped to Better World Books (more about the Darling Library's use of this service in a future post).
Serials were weeded according to our retention policy. Faculty were invited to take what they were interested in keeping of the old issues. The remainder of the discarded serials were recycled.
