Criteria for Withdrawal of Accounting & Finance Superseded Titles

The primary criteria used in identifying an Accounting & Finance deselection list was superseded titles. 

Superseded titles are editions of books that have been replaced by more current editions. In library collections, superseded items may be retained if they have historical value, for example, older editions of almanacs and statistical publications.
