How I Weeded My Library and Survived

Weeding. Either you love it or hate it. We're here to help you love weeding (or at least accept the need to do it). We'll offer tips for what to keep and discard, ideas for what to do with the books afterwards, and suggestions for dealing with those that will invariably be unhappy with books leaving the shelves (including staff).
