Books, Books & More Books!

This is the title of a workshop that I've presented a few times around the system. I recently updated it for a workshop with the Verona Public Library staff - thanks for having me out! There are a couple of new resources that I want to share with you.

RAforAllFirst is Becky Spratford's blog, RA for All. SCLS, along with several other systems, recently held the first in a three-part webinar series focusing on Readers Advisory (RA). You can find the recording for the first one, RA for All, here. I first heard Becky when she presented as part of a Public Library Association webinar last fall and was impressed by her vast book and RA knowledge - and her enthusiasm for sharing that knowledge. You can find her slides and links here. The recording is only available to PLA members. I'm really looking forward to her upcoming sessions on April 5 (Demystifying Genre) and May 19 (RA: Bridging the Physical & Virtual Divide). I've been following her blog for a couple of months and am learning lots from her content.

Sweet-anticipation-logoSecond is Madison Public Library's New Releases list called Sweet Anticipation - isn't that an awesome title? It'll be announced monthly on MADreads and the PDF includes links to LINKcat (when available). It's also good to highlight MADreads. Sweet Anticipation is another reason to follow this excellent blog created by our colleagues at Madison Public Library

In case you're looking for more book-related TechBits posts, I wrote about Edelweiss back in January of 2013 and Book Podcasts in June of 2015.

My slides from the presentation can be found here. Please note that the slides will continue to change as I keep adding new resources.

Thanks for featuring our new book list Jean! Katie H is the one who came up with the idea and we'll be posting the list around the middle of the month. So look for the April titles next week.
