Read It: Faces of Staff @ CML

One thing I really got a kick out of at Columbus Metropolitan Library is the use of staff pictures on the front page of tthe library’s Web site. Everyday, a new image and staff pick goes up in this space. I used screenshots in my talk, and urged them to take the logical next step: recruiting library patrons to do the same.

I believe it was Helene who told me that when a book makes it to the “Read It” area on the web, the number of holds/requests jumps. Also, one staff member reported being recognized at Target as the “lady on the library page.”

Nice going CML!
