Abstract
When liaison librarians at McMaster heard in summer of 2009 that we had to reduce 14,000 reference titles by 75% by December, we took a proactive approach and formed a steering committee to draft guidelines and procedures. With inspiration from a 2009 ACRL poster session by Dickinson College, we formed a plan. Could twenty very busy liaison librarians accomplish the impossible?
