A204 – Matching Books & Communities
Thursday, March 22, 2012
2:30 PM – 3:15 PM
Information Services Librarian, St. Petersburg College
The falling barriers-to-entry of publishing has lead to a flood of new books every year in a variety of formats. Each year, it will become more and more difficult to keep informed on the books coming onto the market, and which will appeal to an individual reader. This is a growing problem for the library of the future. This session will highlight what librarians can do to provide stellar readers’ advisory and will showcase BookLamp.org and the computer-based Book Genome Project for a technology developer’s perspective of what will be possible for reading recommendations in the near future.
