New Issue of "The Corner Shelf" Now Available

Booklist Online has released a new issue of The Corner Shelf: Where Readers' Advisory Meets Collection Development.

Since Rebecca Vnuk has taken over as the Editor for Reference and Collection Management [in what was, at time, a brand new position], Booklist, has been at the forefront of covering RA Service in its entirety-- from acquisition to weeding and all things in between.

Yes, we spend most of our time matching books with readers, but as I have said on this blog many times before, you need a efficient and effective collection of books in order to best serve your patrons.  Deciding what to add and, more importantly, what to get rid of, makes your job easier and your patron's experience more pleasant.

Thanks to Rebecca for seeing that gap in the resources and filling it with a useful and informative newsletter. You can click here for the archive of past issues--which now goes back 2 years-- to see for yourself.
