do we get a gold star?

May 28, 2009

Sherry Thomas guest blogged on Dear Author last week describing the process of how romances get on the shelves at your local library.

in reading the article, i happily ticked off the ‘yes’ box for all the things that we do at Sno-Isle:  purchase romances, catalogue them, use reviews from Romantic Times and other professional journals, monitor blogs, and respond to patron requests.  the solo ‘no’ was using RomanceSells for collection development (much of it is ads).  the comments to the blog post are interesting as well.  i can’t imagine a library system these days not doing all the above.

btw, i put in an order for Thomas’ “Not Quite a Husband” today so look for it in CARL in the next couple of weeks.
