If we are serious about faculty and students using our books and videos, we have a responsibility to maintain our physical collection. Weeding is a vital part of collection development and maintenance. In the same way that we take great care to select appropriate titles to add to our collection, we must re-evaluate our selection of titles for currency of material, appearance, and applicability to the current Fisher curriculum. Doing so supports our mission to actively participate in the research and teaching of the St. John Fisher University community.
Some guick guidelines:
Empty DVD cases recycle with our “commingled” recyclables, plastic/glass/metal. You can put the damaged ones in the green “containers” bins.
VHS tapes do not recycle and should be put in the trash.
