ALA 2013: Program Report-- All About ARCs

I was not the only one posting from ALA.  Here is Kelly's report on her own program from ALA entitled All About ARCs: The Ins and Outs of Requesting, Using, and Abusing Advanced Reading Copies.

I had to miss this program to attend this one, but Kelly's post on her blog Stacked, is very interesting.  Take a look here.

For the record, the BPL never adds ARCs to our collection; it is against our policy. We use them for staff to read so that they can suggest them to readers and then after that we give them out as prizes, but they are often quite bent up by then. A recent success of where our receipt of an ARC has helped us to spread the word about the book to patrons is The Guilty One by Lisa Ballantyne.

I frequently received horror ARCs to review for RA for All: Horror.

Thanks for the post Kelly.
