Title of Poster: A 5-year Plan for Managing Physical Collections at the University of Arizona Libraries
Type of Program: User Services
Description: To address the lack of space for continued expansion of the collection, The University of Arizona Libraries have developed a systematic process and timeline for the ongoing management of the physical collections of information resources. In our poster we will describe the evaluative criteria and parameters for deselection that were developed and demonstrate how they were integrated into a 5-year plan for managing our collections. The process was carefully designed to maximize flexible physical space while having the least negative impact on our customers. We will also illustrate how critical input from key stakeholders shaped our planning. The successes and challenges of implementing the first year of the plan will be highlighted.
