Good morning LM_NETters!

The Weed of the Month web pages on November's topic of Hobbies and
Crafts have been posted at the following URL:
http://www.sunlink.ucf.edu/weed/  Previous topics for the last two years
are also archived at this location.

Some hobbies such as stamp and coin collecting have been around forever
and have changed very little. Likewise, crafts such as needlework,
pottery, basket making, and origami have kept the same basic mastering
skills. However, the passage of time
continues to bring new styles to old ways. It is this new style and
presentation that is often critical in attracting young readers.

When you have examined your school's Hobbies and Crafts Collection and
found titles to weed, please email me at the address below and we will
add them to the list (without your name!). The same goes for terrific
new Hobbies and Crafts titles you would like others to discover.

The SUNLINK Weed of the Month Club is an effort to help provide School
Library Media Specialists with guidelines and suggestions for weeding
their collections a little at a time as well as for adding quality
materials. Included are sections on how to get started, the rationale
for weeding a topic area, criteria to consider, titles to consider for
weeding and titles to consider when replacing outdated materials. These
suggested lists are neither comprehensive nor authoritative.  You may
agree or disagree with some of the titles. That's fine! You may have a
more recent edition or version of a title that you would never consider
for weeding. Remember that weeding is always subject to your
professional judgment because you know your students and your curriculum.

It does not matter how many books you may have, but whether they are
good or not.  Lucius Annaeus SENECA (3 B.C.-65 A.D.)
