ASERL Friends:

The note below is from a colleague at ReCAP, the shared collection program for 
Princeton, NYPL, and Columbia University.   Have any of you done significant 
weeding of high-density storage collections?  If so, Ian Bogus would like to 
pick your brains.

Please share with anyone who might be able to help.  Thanks.

Subject: [Icolc] Removing Items from High Density Storage

Hello all,

We are going to do a deep dive into the opportunities for removing items from 
HDS facilities and reutilizing the space. I know that the general wisdom is 
that the costs outweigh the benefits, but we want to see if we can test that 
wisdom and put some numbers behind them. Before we duplicate efforts, I wanted 
to see if anyone has attempted to do something similar and what their 
experiences were.

Any and all responses are welcome. I would love to hear ideas, success, and
