Awful Library Books

Awful Library Books is another blog that we came across  when looking at other libraries’ links and websites. This blog lists a variety of books that librarians have found in their collections that are either extremely outdated, contain concepts that are foreign to today’s library users and thus no longer relevant,  or feature topics about obsolete technologies. Most libraries usually have a strong weeding system, where items that fall into these categories are removed from the collection, this blog demonstrates that some titles fall through the gaps, remaining on the shelves long past their use by date. Have a look and leave a comment, or if you can think of some you may have come across at your library let us know!
