Daily Thoughts 10/19/2010
Today has been a very steady day. I spent some time gathering selections for my Graphic Novel club tomorrow. We also got a bunch of giveaways to distribute from http://eere.energy.gov/ . This included posters, bookmarks, and other material for National Energy Awareness month which is this October.
I also went through my orders in preparation for tomorrows meeting for collection development. I am also going over the assignments for shelf reading.
I worked a little more on the Fundamentals of Acquisitions class today from the American Library Association. It gave some nice suggestions for upgrading my suggest an item web form. I am looking at reading some recent material on acquisitions management.
I found this interesting. It is a novel being written live for literacy. The Novel Live. http://www.thenovellive.org/novel/
The Eco Libris Campaign is a campaign to read books printed on recycled paper. http://www.ecolibris.net/greenbookscampaign2010.asp I intend to read this book to be reviewed on November 10, 2010; The story of stuff : how our obsession with stuff is trashing the planet, our communities, and our health--and a vision for change by Annie Leonard with Ariane Conrad.
