PCI Webinar with Jill Burket Ragase
Replacing Your Backlist: From New Cover Art to Media Tie-In’s
Competency: Children’s Services
Sub-Category: Builds a collection designed to meet the needs and interests of children:
Connecting children with beloved classics is an integral and cherished aspect of librarianship. Wading through the sea of updated covers, media tie-in pieces, and titles with updated content can be an undesirable and overwhelming aspect of collection management. The balance of connecting kids to great literature in a package they can appreciate not only improves circulation, but maximizes the impact of your collection on the community.
In this interactive webinar program, Jill Burket Ragase will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:
• Evaluate new editions of popular titles
• Gauge the relevance and need for high impact media tie-in items
• Be up to date on recently released backlist and media tie-in items
