Yesterday at #ala11, I met with the NYPL and we discussed depth of collections. The same sentiment, that libraries need a range of books to offer, was echoed the previous night at the ALSC coctail party. For a publisher like Globe Pequot with our long tail, this is important knowledge when we sell to library wholesale accounts.
Cat Urbigkit, author, just stopped by. She will post to this blog with pictures in a couple of days. We had an “it’s a small world” moment when she told me that Globe Pequot is publishing her friend’s book on eagles. Amazing!
