Stock Your RA Pantry: RA 101 from LibraryReads

I am back with Stock Your RA Pantry, a series of posts that address the things you can do anywhere to enhance your RA Services and Resources both now and going forward. And, these are all things any library worker can do, no matter what their official job at the library happens to be.

Today I have LibraryReads' new Readers' Advisory 101 YouTube training video to pass on.

75 minutes that covers the basic essentials of RA with ready to use examples, in 6 parts:

- Appeal (presented by Stephen Sposato) - RA Conversations (Polli Kenn) - Handselling/Book Talking (Andrienne Cruz) - Merchandising (Gregg Winsor) - How to Read a Book in 5 Minutes (Stephanie Anderson) - Keeping Up with Books (Michael Santangelo) - Book Clubs (Kelly Currie)

Everyone can learn from this, even the more experienced among you. I especially like hearing examples and book talks from others, both to spice up my go-to suggestions and to see different styles of RA Service illustrated in front of me-- in this case 6 different styles.
