Weeding is a process of removing obsolete collection of books from the stacks of library. The paper emphasizes on weeding of printed books at Rev BM Pugh library. The books which were not being issued and outmoded were weeded out to maintain the space in the stacks for new arrivals. The paper also discusses the procedure and policy adopted in weeding out of superseded books. The superseded editions, unissued and torn out books were identified through the copies available on the stacks and Koha LMS. Subsequently, the weeded-out books were freely distributed to public by organizing a Book Day. The freely distributed books were recorded in the Accession Register. The weeding procedure makes the collection active and creates space for new arrivals.
