School Library JournalThis helpful guide encourages even the most fearful librarians to tackle the daunting task of weeding through careful and regular analysis. Based upon the SUNLINK Weed of the Month project, it begins by addressing the rationale behind the process, as well as many excuses for avoiding the task. Other chapters include a discussion of guidelines, like the CREW ("Continuous Review, Evaluation, and Weeding") method, with a review of other important criteria. One section provides criteria for weeding in 71 areas, arranged by Dewey number. Final chapters attend to pertinent details of finishing the process. Web resources, an appendix of weeding criteria in table format that includes ideal and maximum number of years for the various subject areas, and an alphabetical and Dewey index conclude this invaluable, succinctly written resource.
