ARMSTRONG LIBRARY - DESELECTION SURVEY
To prepare for the creation of more student space in Armstrong Library, we will
be deselecting a significant fraction of the physical holdings in Armstrong.
Most of the bound periodicals will be removed, and roughly half of the
monographs.  This will allow us to remove half the compact shelving units on the
first floor, making it available to students.  New furniture will be added to
make the space usable for studying.

The criteria for deselecting journals:

  1.  we have online access;

  2.  we do not hold the 'last copy' in the region (as per an inter-library loan
      agreement);

  3.  some historical journal volumes with non-reproducible graphics would be
      retained.

The criteria for deselecting monographs:

  1.  low circulation statistics;

  2.  publication date -- only relevant for some titles;

  3.  we do not hold one of the 'last copies' in the region (as per an 
      inter-library loan agreement).

Below are the lists of the books that we will be pulling.  Interested faculty 
can review the lists and let me know which, if any, titles they would like to
retain.

  *  If you would like the library to retain a specific title in the list, type
     an 'x' in the third column next to that title.

  *  If you would like to retain the book for your personal collection, please
     put your initials in the fourth column.

  *  Any book with one or more 'x' in the third column, or more than one set of
     initials in fourth column, will be kept in the library collection.
