This is a good thing. The term itself, gives indication of this. Just as a good gardener pulls weeds and debris which hinder the health and growth of plants, the Library does the same with books. We take away the old, and underused books, to make way for - not only new books, but new and improved resources and services!
Currently, the Library collection is overrun with many print books more than 40 years old. Therefore, we are evaluating all books which are over 10 years old and have not circulated in 10 years. We will then determine which of these books are no longer acceptable for the collection. When this project is finished, there will be more room for collaborative spaces, and users will be able to "see" what we have!
Our director and staff envision a progressive, innovative, functional, and inviting space for our patrons! So, please excuse our mess, in the ensuing months! We are improving our library for you!
The Library also has over 60,000 eBooks available! http://libguides.uttyler.edu/ebooks
