  The Process of Weeding Out - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Process of Weeding Out is an EP released by Black Flag in 1985 on SST Records.
The title is a reference to the band "weeding out" fans who didn't appreciate the band's instrumental explorations and wanted only to hear hardcore punk material.
This is remarkably snapped out of at 7m42s when Ginn stumbles upon a classic punk rock riff which in turn re-ignites the song into a looser version of its original self.

Weeding is an important part of the collection development process and should occur on a regular basis.
Weeding should be an ongoing part of the workflow of a library to assure that the collection has adequate space to grow and contains materials that are current and relevant to the curriculum and the research needs of the faculty and students.
The weeding process is quite involved: each title is checked against Books for College Libraries 3rd edition; the circulation history of the item is reviewed; and, the item is compared against the curriculum.

Weeding is the process of clearing the collections in the library of those materials which have outlived their usefulness.
Withdrawing materials is a continuing process but weeding the collection is a carefully planned procedure almost as important as selecting new books of high quality.
An annual weeding of the collection would not be out of order, but a complete weeding every 3 or 4 years is imperative.

Weeding should be an important facet of collection building, if a collection should become vibrant and up-to-date and remain so.
While some of the reasons for weeding, such as the physical condition of a book, the existence of a duplicate copy of a work, and space constraints, are quite straightforward, other factors such as age and obsolescence are not that straightforward.
The process of weeding from identification to removal to disposal is, therefore, not an easy one nor is it to be taken lightly.
