Kayla, Paul, Melody, Sal, Ian and Gracemary will be discussing the workflow of this project. Since there are not as many items being received due to a lot of cancellations, there may be some help available from the receivers at LSM for this weeding project.

4. Ian sent out a description of damaged book category to Melody. This will help us in determining what kind of damaged books can be sent to Annex, and offered to other libraries. Anything, which is a rare item, will be accepted by the Annex, regardless of their condition as long as they are shelf ready.

5. Other weedings include Kilmer and Alex. Melody will contact Camden and Dana for their response to an earlier offering. Stacey informed the group regarding Math Library weeding. Approximately 1000 titles have been sent directly to Annex, Andy Martinez has been updating the records and changing the location. Annex is also receiving material from Camden and Alex.
