In an effort to create more student space, provide ease of access to resources, and strengthen their collection, a medium sized academic library at a recently consolidated university undertook a major weeding project in 2014. A weeding plan was developed for both the monographs and the serials. Since it was important to get immediate results in removing items from the collection, the print serials section was the first area selected for weeding. Through a step‐by‐step process that involved all members of the library staff, items were evaluated on electronic availability, availability at the other university libraries, the content, the condition, and the length of run.
