The fossilization of the DAAP Library slide collection paired with new knowledge of the fact that the college was no longer equipping classrooms with slide projectors; confirmation of the retirement of two faculty members who we thought still valued the collection; and the rising value of ‘real estate’ within our library, forced us to consider the future or fate of it. Not wanting to make any rash decisions, but rather, decisions based on knowledge and understanding of the state of the collection and user feedback, we decided to take a proactive approach and launch an assessment of the slide collection and gather feedback from our user community about it.
