Webinar Recording Request

As libraries, we all want to make sure the books we select will stay on our shelves. In order to do so, we have to utilize professional reviews to help us choose the right resources for our community. During this session we will use selection criteria from a materials selection policy to read several reviews with a critical eye. Attendees will be able to read a professional review and determine if it matches policy.
