I haven’t written about our fantastically amazing permanent staff recommendations blog The Browser’s Corner in a while, so that’s what I’m going to do today.
What I love about this blog is that we have staff from all over the library [not just the RA Dream Team] suggesting books. It is regularly updated with new recommendations, but now that we have been at it for awhile, there are hundreds of staff approved books ready for any reader with an Internet connection to peruse.
We try very hard to focus on the appeal of each title, not the plot. As a result, the blog also serves as a great RA tool because you can search by appeal factors as well as authors and titles. Either use the tags to search or use the search box and type in an adjective to see what you get.
If you visit the physical building of the BPL, you can also see our Browser’s Corner shelf [which is in an actual corner] with some of the suggested titles and the recommendation shelf talkers in person.
So no matter where you are, feel free to use the BPL’s staff recommendations to help your patrons find their next good read.
I know I use it all of the time, and it makes me look so smart. So thanks to my fellow staff for all of their work. The Browser’s Corner is the perfect example of a team effort.
