It will become more and more difficult to keep informed about all the new books being published each year, and also to meet the challenge of knowing which titles and which formats will appeal to individual readers. This is a growing problem for the library of the future and this webinar will highlight what librarians can do to provide stellar readers’ advisory coupled with smart collection development practices.
