Description/Abstract

Downsizing a branch library’s floor space by a third necessitates extensive materials de-acquisitioning to the tune of thousands of volumes. This presentation describes the context of downsizing, and the policies and procedures used to determine which materials were recently withdrawn from Colgate University’s Cooley Science Library collections.
