There are some very good reasons for weeding serial collections in an academic environment: keeping the collection current and/or appropriate to the primary needs of the teaching and research in the institution; preservation or conservation purposes; or, to make room on the shelves for more titles or volumes or both. Most academic libraries are not blessed with unending space, so room on the shelves becomes a mandate of sizeable proportions. lack of space is the greatest cause of weeding projects.
