Stems and Series Titles not Requiring Listing

Web page last revised March 7, 2013

Selective depositories in Colorado can discard series titles listed in the excel filesbelow without following formal needs & offers procedures.

As a result of a significant project to condense our federal documents collection on site, we have moved a large number of pieces to Pascal.  In so doing, we have added hundreds of serial titles to the “Stems and Serials Not Requiring Listing” list.  Since the list embedded in the CU web page was aleady quite long, and the new document is 86 pages, we have changed the access to this list.  One link opens the document sorted by SuDoc number.  You will note that we have created a separate column for the date each SuDoc/Title was added to the list.  We know that many of you have already worked through the previous list and dealt with those stems and titles.  So, the other link opens the document sorted by the date the SuDoc/Title was added to the list.  This will allow you to focus on the many titles added to the list in just the last few months.  We hope that this arrangement will make working with the lists easier.  If you have any problems, find mistakes or have suggestions, please notify us.

Follow these directions before discarding volumes in these series:

1. Check the holdings of other depositories interested in collecting this title by clicking the catalog link(s).

  • Within the CU catalog records, click "View additional copies or search for a specific volume/copy" button under the item records, and make sure that its status (to the right of the call number) does not say "LIB USE ONLY" or "MISSING" or "TRACE."
2. CU-Boulder would like replacement copies of worn or damaged volumes. Because damaged materials can't be represented in the catalog, they are listed here. Check to see if CU still needs a copy of the volume you wish to discard.
  • If CU or another library needs the volume, send it to the interested library (see the staff directory for names and contact information).
3. If you've followed steps 1 and 2 and the volume is still not needed by another library, check the "Years You Can Discard" column. If the volume is included here, feel free to discard your copy.


  • Although many of these titles have electronic editions (click on links in the "Title" column), you should make sure these will work for your patrons before discarding.

  • You are not required to discard these titles; this list is meant as a resource for quicker discarding of select series.
