An extensive review of the print Watson Library Reference Collection at the University of Kansas Libraries was conducted over the 2008 spring and fall semesters. As part of a major renovation of the library’s main floor, the administration mandated a 50% reduction to this collection in order to increase public user and collaborative spaces. The planning process, the criteria used for weeding, the implementation of this project, and its outcomes are described in this poster session. Consideration was also given to changes in technologies and formats, and the expectations of today’s library users.
