Daily Thoughts 04/26/2013
On the way to work, I read some more of the Lean Entrepreneur. I am reading about the concept of minimal viable product which is about the minimum product that can be built that gives value to customers.
I placed the book, The New Digital Age, Reshaping the Future of People, Nations, and Business by Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen on hold.
This morning, I checked the Facebook and Twitter for the library. I also checked the displays. We had a management meeting this morning. We are getting Book Prospector which is interesting. http://www.bookprospector.com We also discussed a variety of issues including different vendors like Baker and Taylor, Midwest Tape, and Ingram Content Group. There was a bit on the new computer classes in May.
This afternoon, I did a bit of weeding and shifting in the 900s and the large print books.
May is National Inventors Month.
