Links from the Staff - Week of April 12 - 18, 2015

Haven't done one of these posts for quite some time and thought it might be time to do so again, especially as we have just been celebrating National Library Week! Here are a few links shared by library staff this past week  ...

"High on a hill was a lonely book cart
Yodelahee, yodalahee, yodelahee hoooo
There was a music CD that no one else heard
Yodelahee, etc."

  • I shared a link on April 14th to an article from Publishers Weekly about eBook & online retailer sales with some good charts and interesting statistics: 
    • E-Books Gaines, Online Retailers Slipped in 2014
      • Brian B said it was "Interesting to note that in the second graph, sales via e-commerce declined along with shopfront bookstores. The big winners were book fairs, who doubled their share, and the "other" category."

  • And here's one more link I found this weekend while catching up on some publisher newslettersFrom the lovely folks at Penguin Random House Library Marketing: 


Naomi Novik Shows Her Appreciation for Libraries!

Naomi Novik, author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Temeraire novels, has already captured the hearts of many librarians with her upcoming novel, Uprooted. And, Ms. Novik is just as passionate about libraries and librarians as they are about her books.
