Libraries: Book Deselection 2022
The University Libraries are seeking faculty collaboration on decisions regarding print book deselection, or print book withdrawal, from the collections. The print book deselection project is driven, in part, by plans to vacate the Health Sciences Library in the BioInformation Center (BIC) and consolidate collections, staff, and student spaces in Reinert-Alumni Memorial Library.
Beyond consolidation, this project represents an effort to manage our legacy print collections as we prioritize a dynamic, responsive collection to meet the continuously changing needs of our faculty and students. The title lists prepared for this project represent approximately 15% of our print book collections and all are titles that have not circulated in 15 years or more.
The University Libraries team invites faculty to review these title lists and provide input into what is retained in our collections. To learn more about the project, our collections strategy, and to participate in decision making, please visit our webpage at https://culibraries.creighton.edu/books2022.
Please note that the deadline for submitting feedback is July 1, 2022.
For more information about the project, please contact Rick Kerns, Head of Academic Information Resources, at email@example.com.
