Withdrawal and Replacement

WITHDRAWAL AND REPLACEMENT

 

In order to ensure a vital, useful, and well-kept library, in keeping with available space, materials are regularly discarded from the collection after careful consideration of each title. Items withdrawn because of loss, damage, or wear will not automatically be replaced with the identical title. One or more of the following factors are used by the Library Director and the Professional Librarians in determining if materials should be withdrawn or replaced. These are just guidelines. The final judgment if material is to be withdrawn is with the Library Director and the Professional Librarians.

  • Material that cannot be mended or rebound
  • Currency of material
  • Professional standards
  • Usage statistics
  • Existence of coverage on the subject within the library
