Subject: Journal selection/deselection

     We are interested in determining what criteria other libraries use to
     weed their journal collections.  We are a medium-sized medical library
     with approximately 2070 current subscriptions.  Last year, we did a
     six month use study and the results were used to actually cancel
     "little used" titles.  We would like to know how other libraries
     handle selection/deselection of journals.

     Please respond directly to me:
