I've been weeding out titles with outdated covers and replacing if necessary. Most of the Sweet Valley Highs hadn't gone out in a while so I tackled those first. They were taking up at least two shelves that I could used for something more current and popular.

Those are funny. Since I only work part-time in the evenings at a library (I'm still working on my MLIS), I haven't gotten to help with weeding. However, I did get a laugh out of a little girl who picked up an old "Where's Waldo?" book on our book sale shelf that kept calling him Reynaldo. I'm sure whenever I do get to assist with weeding I will have some good titles to add to the discussion as I am pretty sure that some of the collection hasn't been weeded since the 50s.

I run a curriculum materials center at an academic library...and am almost out of room, so I have begun weeding a collection that I don't think has EVER been weeded. I literally weeded "You will go to the Moon Someday" and a bunch of pro-atomic energy titles that were downright scary!

Thanks to all my SparkFriends who have supported me through this journey to health!

So I've been doing some collection weeding--my favorite book that I pulled

"computers in hospital rooms: a new technology" from 1983. I think our university got it when the nursing program was new and somehow it survived past culling.

What books have you found on a shelf that probably shouldn't be there any more.
