Librarians, how do you anticipate demand? Do your collection development policies address how to anticipate demand? Do you even know where to begin? Come to BEA on Wednesday, May 25, to hear Wendy Bartlett and Nora Rawlinson present an intriguing topic: “Caught short when a debut novel suddenly leaps onto the NYT Best Seller list? This session explores how to anticipate demand and stay ahead of heavy holds, even with a limited budget.” Prior to heading to the session, take a look at these two sites: Early Word and NovelMovies. If you have your own suggestions for staying ahead of the demand (including patron driven acquisition models) you want to share, please post!
