The SUNLINK Weed of the Month topic for September  is "World War II."

The year 2005 marks the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II and 
also the first anniversary of the WWII Memorial in Washington D.C.  A 
flurry of commemorative events, educational activities, and publishing 
is currently in place to mark this occasion. There are wonderful new and 
interesting titles available now to supplement or replace aging and 
possibly biased titles in school library collections.

For information on criteria, a rationale, suggested titles to consider 
for weeding, and titles to consider for purchase, go to this section of 
the SUNLINK web site:

A brief explanation of Weed of the Month for new LM_NET members: The 
SUNLINK Weed of the Month began in September 1997, as an effort to help 
provide Florida's School Library Media Specialists with guidelines and 
suggestions for weeding their collections a little at a time as well as 
adding quality materials. The project idea and specific suggestions came 
from media specialists around the world via LM_NET.  A section of a 
school library media collection is identified each month during the 
school year  as a weeding target. 

Please note:  We have discovered that even Weeds of the Month need 
weeding!  We are in the process of updating criteria for weeding and 
rearranging the topics generally by Dewey as we go.  The updated WOMs 
are linked from the WOM Archive at
