Selected obsolete, redundant, or low-use stocks are periodically discarded to make room for new stocks. Stocks in the lists below are candidates for removal. If you think a listed stock warrants continued maintenance at the BDSC please contact us. Candidates for pruning are selected for a variety of reasons, usually one of the following:
- Identical or functionally equivalent stock component is available in another BDSC stock
- Stock is available from another stock center
- Stock has received little or no use in recent years
- Stock purpose has been superceded by other stocks in the collection
Please join our mailing list if you wish to be notified when new discard candidates are posted. We send only a few e-mails a year. To join, go to the BDSC maillist homepage, click “Subscribe”, type in your e-mail address, click "submit" and follow the instructions (you will not be asked to pick a password)..
