Daily Thoughts 08/14/2017
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I read some more of The Patron Driven Library on the way to work. I am reading about how consortiums purchase databases and other electronic resources.
I am looking at GIST for ILLIAD which is an acquisitions module which can be added to ILLIAD.
I also took a moment to look at Design Thinking for Libraries
I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.
I also spent some time discussing databases.
I was turned down by the Westchester Community Foundation today.
This afternoon, I put in two order for books and looked through a copy of the New York Times Book Review.
The Adult Board Games Night is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. tonight in the Fiction Room.
There is also a Fundamentals of Computers Class from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and a Beginning Microsoft Word class from 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.
On the way home, I read some more of The Patron Driven Library. Dee Ann Allison describes advocacy as a form of very intensive marketing. She has a few interesting links including Turning the Page Advocacy Training http://www.ala.org/pla/education/turningthepage , The Edge Benchmark Initiative http://www.libraryedge.org and Impact Survey http://impactsurvey.org/advocacy
I also read some of the Joy of Less on the way home. I am reading about how to organize bedrooms and wardrobes. Francine Jay reminds us to make your bed every morning.
