​Diversity in Publishing

by Tracy Gallagher, Becky Walton, Jenny McCluskey, Jeanne Martin and Jill M. Barton Collection Development, Youth Materials
Does the topic of diversity make you squirm in your chair a little uncomfortably? Do you truly understand the reasons behind all the discussions about diversity and exactly why it’s so important? Do you know who the underserved young people in your community are? Or why? Or what their needs are? 


IngramSpark Honored At Authors Guild Awards

by IngramSpark Staff (@ingramspark)
In the past decade alone, opportunities to self-publish a book have become vast and plentiful. We’ve been incredibly blessed to play a role in the continued growth of the self-publishing industry, are happy to see it thriving, and are making efforts to continually push it forward every day. And while it’s wonderful to get props for our efforts, what drives us is helping people across the globe share their stories, dreams, and passions.

Celebrating Poetry for Everyone

By: Ann Lehue, MSIS, Manager, Collection Development Programs
National Poetry Month offers time for us to turn our attention to this oft-maligned section in libraries. Poetry does not have to be inaccessible and boring or difficult to read. In fact, poems sprang up as a simple way to pass along stories from generation to generation. The rhythm, the rhyme (in some cases), the alliteration, and other literary devices, along with the conciseness and repetition of poetry, made it enjoyable, memorable, and understandable for community members of all ages and abilities.
