The modern librarian likely has a never-ending to-read pile, which translates into a readers’ advisory mess and an out-of-control readers’ advisory budget. This workshop will offer practical tips to keep up with readers and your seemingly insurmountable to-be-read pile, saving time and money in the process.
Topics Covered In This Workshop:
How to track titles that are popular in the country and in their libraries
How to gain enough information from reviews and dust jackets to discuss books with readers
How reader comments, librarian comments, and a range of social media can be mined to support RA work
How to develop a personal plan to keep up with the weekly influx of new titles
Only $50 for 90 minutes of interactive learning!
