Daily Thoughts 10/19/2014
I spent some time looking through the New York Times and the Publishers Weekly Bestseller Lists. I also took a look at the National Book Awards Finalists on Earlyword.
I checked the Facebook and Twitter pages for the library this morning.
I have been reading a bit more of The Accidental Library Marketer. I am reading about collecting different statististics for the library. For example, sometimes in house usage statistics are counted for periodicals and other materials. We keep some track of social media statistics. There is also a little bit about library value calculators. This is one from the Massachusetts Library http://www.ala.org/advocacy/advleg/advocacyuniversity/toolkit/makingthecase/library_calculator
When Iggy Pop can’t live off his art, what chance do the rest have?
