We had that sorted into about 4 piles in summer of '04 and I can help with
that again if you want.
The 4 categories were:
1) consult books - often used
2) consult books - rarely used (so if the Armillary was going to a smaller
event, you only took pile 1)
3) research books (these were not really useful at a consult table - either
they had small, but important, problems with them or they took special skills
to use; these were sources definitely worth keeping, but I wouldn't really
hand them to a submitter to paw through)
4) other (this pile included old archival stuff that we didn't want to pitch
and some sources that were problematic, but that would be used to see what a
submitter read when they found it in their local library and used it for
This sort only took about an hour - the rest of the time was putting some of
the photocopies in binders, etc.
