Documenting acquisitions

Arriving in a steady stream at the Pesky Library are new books and DVDs. We struggle with the best ways to let the academy community know what we have. E-mails go out to individuals or departments highlighting titles we think match-up. All new books are entered into LibraryThing before they are placed on the new book shelves in the front alcove. Lately, we have started taking pictures of books and DVDs, sometimes an entire small order, sometimes a group on a theme. We put the pictures into a New Aquisitions Set on Flickr with a list of the titles in the description. If anything strikes your fancy, send us a message and we'll hold it for you!
