The editorial board of the Theology Cataloging Bulletin is looking for first-person accounts of projects, training, or learning experiences that would be of interest to other technical services librarians for the Testimony column.

Submissions should be 1,000-2,000 words and can include images with appropriate copyright permission and attribution. The TCB had been a member-only publication since 1992 and just launched as an open access journal in January on the OJS platform in the hope of attracting a larger audience and sharing our news with others.

Testimony: Personal Collection Development

This article was previously featured in Vol. 24, No. 4 of Theology Cataloging Bulletin. Testimony is a feature in TCB that gives a place for members of the technical services community to share their stories. We felt this testimony was applicable to the wider ATLA community and have since published it for our members below.

This column serves as a debriefing of the events that led me to the borderline-traumatic deselection of three library collections. Within five years, my dad passed away, my son was born, and I was hired in my first professional university library position. My father’s passing forced my family to consider the fate of the stamp collection he had amassed over fifty years. A few years later, the coin flipped, and new fatherhood compelled me to question the content of my personal book and media collection. These two deeply personal auras of thought were lent a professional perspective as the university library I was newly hired into began its first ever comprehensive weeding. What follows are the brief histories behind these three collections.
