In his work Double Fold, Nicholson Baker1 made himself famous (or infamous depending on your point of view) by decrying the loss of material through the weeding or preservation processes practiced in most libraries. He argues that loss of the item itself, even if rendered in a different format, prevents readers from exploring the artifactual as well as contextual value of the work. However, as most academic libraries are well aware, weeding is a necessity. Weeding allows the removal of outdated material or material no longer relevant to the curricular and research needs of its primary clientele so that new acquisitions can be comfortably accommodated.
