Engaging the campus community in the deaccessioning process with an innovative discovery interface (11:00 – 11:20 am)
Portions of the print collection at an academic library will be deaccessioned to free up space for new library services. Library IT has modified the discovery interface to allow faculty and staff to review items that have been identified for possible removal from the collection. The interface allows anyone from the campus community to quickly provide feedback to the subject selectors so that deaccessioning decisions can be reversed. This presentation will share details about the design of the system and lessons learned from its implementation.
