Over the past few years, Bucknell University’s Bertrand Library has made many changes to evolve our services, physical library space, and collections in response to changing expectations and needs of our researchers. Our Collection Development team was charged with a task to develop a plan that would holistically examine our print journal collection and forecast what would be required for a single-effort de-accessioning project, aiming to weed our print journal collection by 50% or more. I will present our planning process, criteria, and grand reconceptualization for the space.
