Update on Nov. 23.
After further discussion with Sharon I'd like to propose a solution to the items we're finding that librarians want to withdraw. We can set aside a couple of sections on the back side of Range 104 (between the end of the indexes that we're keeping and the cluster of JSTOR volumes that we're keeping). Those sections could receive reference books that you want to discard. We wouldn't do anything with them until everything else that is in process has been taken care of. We could assess what's there and decide whether to notify faculty again.
Let me know if you want to do that.
My previous post:
We have so many processes going on simultaneously with the various materials that we are either withdrawing or moving within the building that we need to halt new withdrawals. I know that some of you are spotting things in your section that you want withdrawn rather than moved but the deadline on that expired months ago now. We need to wait now until the dust has cleared on the rest of the process before we handle more withdrawals.
In addition to logistical concerns, we need to not withdraw anything very significant because we have sent the faculty multiple invitations to comment on withdrawals and risk some push back if we then toss titles that weren't listed.
If you think something needs to be gotten rid of please just leave it in reference for now and plan to go back next summer to weed it.
