Finding Funding and Fueling Excitement for Your School



Imagine beginning your career as a librarian or taking a position with a new school. You have now inherited a collection of 20,000 books - completely unknown to you. Enter TitleWise® Collection Analysis.

Join librarian Carrie Friday to hear her story of changing jobs and moving to a high school library. Learn how she “met” and got to know her collection using Titlewave® and Follett Destiny® Library Manager. Her first discovery? 80% of her library collection was nonfiction. There was work to be done.

Carrie came from a library where she knew every book on the shelf. Now she was faced with a challenge. Hear how she used Destiny Library Manager and TitleWise to gain a full understanding of what was on the shelves. She identified gaps in the collection and determined what was needed to fuel excitement to get students to come back to the library, visit, and read!

TitleWise made justifying the funding for purchasing decisions easy too. All the data she needed to prove her case was easily printed and shared with the school advisory committee and final decision makers.

Finally, hear how Carrie genrefied her library and shared her information with her students, parents, and educators – bringing excitement back to the library. She was new to this school, but she’d already made her mark. Join us to hear her story!

Attendees will learn:

• Ways to generate meaningful reports with Titlewave and TitleWise to “meet” your library collection like never before - discover Enriched Reporting

• How to use hard data to inform purchasing and justify funding

• How genrefication can breathe new life into your library and get students reading
