Rating the Gould Library's Least Necessary Books
Compact shelving ain't gonna cut it forever. Every month of every year, our own Gould Library receives more books, and sooner or later, we'll have to admit to ourselves that there are some we really just don't need that much. What stays? What goes? Use this helpful index to start trimming the fat.
