This webinar will not only discuss how to improve decisions when purchasing new items, but also how to make existing collections work harder. Until recently, many libraries would respond to the high volume of dead items in their collections through weeding alone. Our panel will discuss the use of an evidence-based transfer process to move dead items to new locations where there is a proven demand, therefore offering an item every chance to circulate before it is removed from the collection.
