I have been instructed to write a weeding policy for av materials.
While the primary focus is on videos, we also have audiobooks, music
cassettes and cd's as well as dvd's, and my policy must be format specific.
I am required to provide other existing av weeding policies with my
recommendations. Hopefully many of you out there have such a policy that
you can share. We are a public library but all contributions will be
greatly appreciated.

I read with interest the comments a few weeks ago on video weeding, but
didn't save them. Opinions, without a formal policy will also be welcome.

Pre-thanks to all.
