Replacement: Major multi-edition texts, heavily circulated, high-interest or one-of-a-kind items should be replaced when appropriate.
Multiple Copies: Added copies are purchased when necessary. Certain subject areas may be represented by more than one copy.
Deselection: The nursing literature undergoes regular evaluation for applicability and current research. Older, outdated materials, or materials are largely sent to remote.
Out of Print: Seldom pursued.
Preservation: Items should be carefully evaluated to determine whether deselection is the more appropriate choice.
