Stuck in the Weeds - Webinar (08/06/19)


What to do with those out of date and out of touch books in your collection? The librarians behind the popular blog Awful Library Books share ideas for developing a successful weeding plan.

Participants will be inspired to look at library collections with fresh eyes and analyze data in different ways - while appreciating the lighter side of some weeding follies and foibles!

Virtual Trainers: Holly Hibner & Mary Kelly 

Holly Hibner is the Adult and Teen Services Coordinator at the Plymouth District Library in Plymouth, Michigan.  She has a mild obsession with weeding (ok, maybe not so mild), and can often be found walking the stacks looking for missing, damaged, and just plain weird titles.  She also loves all things techie and the challenge of a good reference question. Holly is riding high and pulling all the glory out of her term as a Councilor-at-Large for the American Library Association.

Mary Kelly is the Digital Resources and Emerging Technologies Librarian at the Plymouth District Library in Plymouth, Michigan.  She is passionate about collection quality, and when she’s not wrangling with Overdrive, she is usually hunched over the computer looking at spreadsheets. She spent a few years in Youth Services, molding young minds through Toddler Disco, but recently returned to the promised land of Adult Services. 

For street cred, Holly and Mary co-authored the book Making a Collection Count: a holistic approach to library collection management. Reading it will surely change your life, so interlibrary loan a copy today! They are also co-authors of the popular blog Awful Library Books.

This is an online class. Access information will be emailed one week ahead.

Cost: NEFLIN classes are free of charge for Florida library staff. Registration is required for all classes and NEFLIN members get priority.
