Submitter: This is Patriot Nation where I found this book, so perhaps that’s enough incentive to keep this 35 year old book on the Pats. It certainly looks like it got a lot of use over the years. Unfortunately, this book was written before our 8 appearances and 4 wins in the Super Bowl. With our recent win, there have has been a glut of new books written on the Patriots, so I am not sure this one is worth keeping. Interestingly, the library I found this at has the complete series in offsite storage. So I can’t get my hands on the Bills, Saints, Lions, and etc. (They even have one on the old St. Louis Cardinals!) Drat.
Holly: What is it with storage? What is the goal of storing library materials? They aren’t being truly archived or preserved if they are stuffed in boxes or on shelves in warehouses or garages or basements somewhere. What is the criteria for putting something in storage vs. weeding it? As Submitter points out, there are lots of newer books on the Patriots available.
