Does Western Libraries ever permanently remove materials?

Western Libraries has a living collection, which means new materials are continually added to support evolving academic program and research needs. This means the collection requires regular, ongoing maintenance which includes permanently removing materials. Material identified for permanent removal (rather than storage) is currently limited to duplicate copies that are held by Western Libraries. We are committed to refining our policies to ensure that these extra copies are not rare or unique in any way. Materials withdrawn from our collection are donated to a vendor who manages the books in a socially responsible way.
