A Librarian’s Perspective on Cybils Finalists

Our finalist lists get put to use in a number of different ways, from fodder for individual TBR piles to reference sheets for booksellers. As our NFPB category chair Jennifer Wharton shows in a recent blog post, our finalists are also helpful for librarians, who can use them for collection development.

If you're curious how librarians use the lists of finalists, take a gander at her post, which looks at which Cybils books her library is going to buy, which they already own, and sprinkles in a bit of information on circulation statistics as well as commentary. It's an intriguing inside view for us non-librarians!
