Collection out of whack? Need some balance?
We’ve all been there. Sometimes budgets get slashed for a while, or we lose a selector and can’t catch up, or a librarian leaves and we discover that they have only been buying their favorite authors or section, or books with a certain flower on the cover. Occasionally patrons do secret five-finger censoring of certain titles or subjects, or never return the book that everyone needs for that seventh-grade English class. Sometimes we take over a collection and simply want to know where to start. However we get there, from time-to-time, our collections get out of balance or are missing key titles or even sections.
