Greetings Library World!  Welcome to yet another balmy, spring-like November
day - and welcome back to yet another fun, informative, inspirational,
educational, and recreational list of things people want from YOUR library.

 

First - updates to the list.  Based on sheer volume, I have separated out
television series from feature films in the DVD section of this list.  This
list helps highlight the severe lack of television series purchasing that is
occurring in our collective system (unless you are a time-traveling romance
or hunting terrorists).  Out of the 20 items listed, only two have more than
20 copies, and 15 titles have less than 5 copies.

 

But television series isn't the only category where demand is not meeting
supply.  For those budget conscious buyers out there who wish to get the
most circulation out of their items, explore audio books, large print items
from bestselling authors, non-fiction books (Patrick Kennedy's book "A
Common Struggle" was published on October 5, has 51 people lined up for it,
and only 11 libraries have purchased copies), books written by
conservatives, and blu-rays. or movies of any format.  Trust me - they
circulate.

 

And on a final note for those closely looking at the list - yes I know there
are multiple records for what appear to be the same item.  There are four
records for Jurassic World (Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray + DVD combo, 3D Blu-Ray, and
DVD) while Mad Max: Fury Road has four records (Blu-Ray, Combo Pack, Special
Edition DVD, and single disc edition DVD).  So check the catalog for new
items they may pop up to fulfill your patron requests - you might be
surprised.  Sometimes those items entered into the system first get the most
amount of holds, even if that is not the most common item type.

 

So as always thank you for your kind attentions, enjoy the sunshine while it
lasts, and I'll see you next month.

 

Josh
