Okay prepare yourself. Here are 2 pictures of the books that were weeded from the library.
I am lucky in that my school has the remote “Panther” scanner, and so it was a breeze to scan all 431 books pictured here. We are only about a fourth of the way through here too. It’s scary to realize that many books are leaving the library. But they must go. I plan to run an analysis soon after weeding to see what effect it has on my age of the collection. I’m not expecting miracles or dramatic improvements, but I should see a significant difference. I am hoping for an improvement of five years (from average copyright date of 198 to 1993). If that happens I will be PLEASED as punch!
We had open house toight, but thankfully the library was closed. It still resembles a minor disaster area. I was trained today to use the TekNet video distribution system. I hope I can remember all that. It seems complicated, and I have to train teachers! One day at a time…one day at a time.
Several of the teachers have begun talking to me. I am so blessed that they are being patient with me. Today is the first time I feel like I accomplished ANYTHING! One more day and then kids come back (Monday.) I hope I am ready.
