Public Multiple Copy List for borrowing book sets from public libraries
This spreadsheet contains data collected from public libraries that will be useful to librarians who either run book groups or help local book groups procure multiple copies of titles. All the libraries who have added their data are happy to share their sets. You will find the titles, authors, target audience, number of copies, formats available, library contact info and more. The list is available here. Each library may add or edit information on the Multiple Copy List. Because it is a shared document, anyone with the link can open it and edit it. Changes are saved automatically. Please contact Loona Brogan whenever you make any changes, as she keeps a backup copy of the newest version of the spreadsheet. If you have trouble or need further assistance with adding or editing data, please contact Loona. Loona.Brogan@cutlerlibrary.org
Here are instructions on how to request these sets from specific libraries.
If you cannot access this list for any reason, or if you would like to add or edit information on the spreadsheet, please contact Loona Brogan at Loona.Brogan@cutlerlibrary.org.

October Is Information Literacy Month

unesco-2The Vermont Consortium of Academic Libraries, Vermont School Library Association, and the Vermont Library Association believe that information literacy is crucial to Vermonters’ success from K-20, into the workplace and continuing throughout the lifespan. While librarians and libraries provide the foundation for teaching information literacy skills, offering quality information sources and collaborative spaces for all Vermonters, we do not work alone in valuing and building these skills…There is an urgent need for dialog among key stakeholders to raise awareness of the importance of information literacy as a lifelong skill, strengthen channels of communication to help students transition their skills from one setting to another, and to help Vermont’s students become information literate adults and citizens.
