Science Library Deselection Spring 2016: Email to Faculty

Letter to Faculty

Thank you for assisting us with science deselection in the Sanders Science Library last semester. This semester we will be reviewing 1,905 titles in the following broad subject areas:


Number of Candidates

Astronomy (QB)


Chemistry (QD)


Cybernetics (Q300-Q390)


Oceanography (GC)


Physical Geography (GB)


Physics (QC)


Science Education (Q1-Q295)


As with past projects these titles have been a part of the collection at least 10 years and have no checkouts or tracked internal use for more than 10 years. These have been reviewed by Andrea Wright, our Science Librarian, with assistance from the Library Outreach Division.

You may review the list of candidates here or view them in the Sanders Science Library. Candidates are on the shelves marked with colored dots. A list of candidates is also available at the circulation desk. Once faculty in related fields have the opportunity to review these items, all Furman faculty, staff and students will be invited to review. If you wish to retain one of these candidates you must check it out or send an email to listing the title(s) to be kept. You can find more details at: .

We appreciate your help in making sure our collection remains current and relevant to you and our students!

If you have any additional questions please email Caroline Mills ( or call 864.294.2264.
