This poster will review findings of a recent study titled “Weeding Politics-Related Book Collections in Academic Libraries." This survey was administered in Summer 2015 and asked academic librarians nationwide about their opinions and actions regarding removing books for political science and related disciplines (including, but not limited to, legal studies, international studies, public policy, and public administration) from the library collection for withdrawal or transfer. Collection development practices from colleges and universities across the U.S. were collected and used to suggest best practices for political science collection development.
