cindysku @librarianosnark I did grades 6 through 12. I then took them to the stacks to give them recs based on their answers.#readadv -9:09 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather Glad I caught the tail end (dinner ran late). Will look forward to the recap. Thanks. #readadv -9:08 PM Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku @booksNyarn @boothheather sure dm me your e-mail#readadv 9:08 PM Jan 17th, 2013

veganlibrarian @boothheather We count the number of books taken off of displays and record RA questions. #readadv -9:08 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio We will archive the chat next week and will look forward to seeing you all on Feb 7, when we will discuss award

LizB me: let's do #readadv chat on weeding @catagator: "I just wrote a blog post on weeding" me: is there anything she hasn't done a post on? -9:05
PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @tkslibrarian as did totally free-choice reading assignments from the English department. Oh, how I loved working w/them! #readadv -9:05 PM Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku @boothheather I gave them all survey's and then picked out books for them based on their taste. I also provided lemonade. #readadv -9:05 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian @sophiebiblio All three, actually. I do what I can to help match readers to books. Some kids come in knowing what they want. #readadv -9:05 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @tkslibrarian making it clear that the right match b/w book & reader was my #1 goal led to more meaningful circs. #readadv -9:05 PM Jan 17th, 2013

catagator @LizB @Sophiebiblio yes on this topic!!! I just wrote a blog post about it. Let's #readadv it. -9:04 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @TKSlibrarian one-on-one RA worked best for more meaningful circ stats. Also telling them "if it doesn't work, bring it back!" #readadv -9:04 PM Jan 17th, 2013

helgagrace @boothheather We keep internal use stats as well.#readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn @LizB @sophiebiblio Yes! #readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @TKSlibrarian do students check out books based on your recommendation? Teacher requirements? Browsing?#readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

17th, 2013

bookslover @booksNyarn @sophiebiblio. I added more manga & graphic novels. My circ numbers are really good #readadv -9:03 PM Jan

boothheather @cindysku that is AWESOME! What was the topic?#readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @TKSlibrarian they're not the only measure, by any means, but they are very helpful. #readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

librarianosnark thanks everyone! hopefully no accident next time!#readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @sophiebiblio oh, i'm sensing a "how weeding is important to #readadv" possible topic! #readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather I'd love to know what kinds of stats people keep other than overall circ/month #readadv -9:03 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB RT @TKSlibrarian: A7: As I thought about success/circ numbers, I wrote this short blog post http://t.co/796ynrDd#readadv -9:02 PM Jan
17th, 2013

sophiebiblio RT @cindysku: I knew my readers advisory was successful when I had a book recommendation program and it was full. #readadv -9:02 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn @bookslover @sophiebiblio I tore collections apart in the 8 months I have been at my library - circ has grown the last six. #readadv -9:02 PM Jan 17th, 2013

Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku RT @sophiebiblio: A7 having repeat customers: "I loved those books, can you help me find more?" The best! #readadv -9:02 PM

cindysku I knew my reader's advisory was successful when I had a book recommendation program and it was full. #readadv -9:02 PM Jan 17th,

2013

TKSlibrarian A7: As I thought about success/circ numbers, I wrote this short blog post http://t.co/Kns3drfV #readadv -9:01 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @booksNyarn @helgagrace @boothheather I love seeing the book display get empty!! #readadv -9:01 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @helgagrace I just did a little happy dance thinking about them. #readadv -9:01 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @sophiebiblio I like weeding & seeing that the collection is circulating #readadv -9:01 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB Thanks for joining us at #readadv. We’ll be back the first Thursday of February (2/7) at 8 pm EST #readadv -9:01 PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads RT @boothheather: A7 needing to refill displays often = success #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio A7 having repeat customers: "I loved those books, can you help me find more?" The best! #readadv -9:00 PM

younglibrarian RT @boothheather: A7 needing to refill displays often = success #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

librarianosnark A7: for programming, patrons leaving with smiles, excited chatter about what they did. #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

helgagrace @sophiebiblio Oooh, stats! #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th,
2013

LizB Thanks for joining us at #readadv. We’ll be back the first Thursday of February (2/7) at 8 pm EST #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn A7. I am not on desk as much, but I love seeing holes in the displays I do - people are trying out titles! #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio A7 I love stats. I like to make graphs of the slow but steady upticks in our social media audience. #readadv -9:00

helgagrace A7 Something as simple as seeing the books disappear from your display. #readadv -9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather A7 needing to refill displays often = success#readadv 9:00 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @helgagrace My thoughts exactly. A successful program is nice, but that connection is awesome #readadv -8:59 PM Jan 17th, 2013

librarianosnark A7: readers checking out the books you rec, returning for

more recs. #readadv -8:59 PM Jan 17th, 2013

VaVeros RT @sophiebiblio: Q7: What is success and how do we define it in terms of reader’s advisory? Librarianship as a whole?#readadv -8:59 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB A7 re success for #readadv: i have been known to track the circ figures for titles I booktalked during school/summer reading events #readadv -8:59 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather A7: I've succeeded if people leave the library feeling good. #readadv -8:59 PM Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku I used to not have programs on the day I knew when boy scouts were meeting. Now they meet in the library so I can have one program #readadv -8:59 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @boothheather @cindysku it's good to use those down times to reflect on what you've accomplished, what could be improved & plan. #readadv -8:58 PM Jan 17th, 2013

helgagrace Q7 Small victories--matching a book to a reader, and having them come back and say "thank you, that was perfect"#readadv -8:58 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio Q7: What is success and how do we define it in terms of reader’s advisory? Librarianship as a whole?#readadv -8:57 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather @cindysku yeah, august is a total bust for us. Glad someone filled me in my first summer. #readadv -8:57 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover RT @LizB: @cindysku knowing school/local group schedules are so critical #readadv -8:57 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @cindysku "we tried having something during band season and it didn't work" for example is valuable knowledge #readadv-8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @LizB exactly. Tracy Jordan's "you're not my dad!" with a side of Zach de la Rocha's "F*** you, I won't [read] whatcha tell me!" #readadv -8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover I sit at the Ref desk, so I am adding more fiction to my YA reading #readadv -8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads @sophiebiblio Exactly. No obligations to starred reviews etc. #readadv -8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @cindysku knowing school/local group schedules are so critical #readadv -8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather A6, Maybe I'm lucky that my RA ventures have largely been positive, so I leverage that experience by just plowing ahead sometimes! #readadv -8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian @LizB That's my strategy too #readadv -8:56 PM Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku I have to know when I am going to lose teen such as march band season because I knew from the past year #readadv-8:55 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @BethReads nice -- that sounds both strategic and like a recipe for fun reading. #readadv -8:55 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @sophiebiblio the post-Printz toddler phase of reading. I don't wanna! Why can't i read this and eat crackers all day? pick me up! #readadv -8:54 PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads @sophiebiblio This is working together so far for me. I'm focusing on reading books with more teen appeal.#readadv -8:54 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @helgagrace yes, I am randomizing the heck out of my reading this year. Serendipity! #readadv -8:54 PM Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku I can know maybe I should not spend as much money on a program during spring break because a lot of our patrons are on vacation #readadv -8:54 PM Jan 17th, 2013

2013

sophiebiblio @cindysku absolutely. Retrospective/institutional knowledge is very important & useful. #readadv -8:54 PM Jan 17th,

LizB @TKSlibrarian sometimes my new ideas are seeing ideas that won't fit MPOW but realizing if i bend/tweak/origami it, it'll work#readadv -8:54 PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads @bookslover I read Ten and This is Not a Test.#readadv -

8:53 PM Jan 17th, 2013

helgagrace @BethReads I might have to do @angelina41's challenge next year, this year I'm already committed to random book selection. #readadv -8:53 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @BethReads I'm appreciating it & encouraging others from afar. I am still neck-deep in my defiant, reading only what I WANNA phase. #readadv -8:53 PM Jan 17th, 2013

cindysku I think learning from the past can be useful when looking to plan a new event. #readadv -8:53 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian @LizB That's not to say that we don't all have great NEW ideas sometimes too #readadv -8:53 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @BethReads @sophiebiblio @angelina41 What did you read? #readadv -8:52 PM Jan 17th, 2013

2013

sophiebiblio @bookslover @lizb and then rise like a phoenix from the ashes! What? Too grandiose? #readadv -8:52 PM Jan 17th,

LizB RT @TKSlibrarian: @sophiebiblio B/c someone out there has probably done variation of it & blogged about their own success/failure #readadv -8:52 PM Jan 17th, 2013

PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads @sophiebiblio I'm doing @angelina41 's challenge. I've already read my two horror books for Jan. #readadv -8:52

LizB @bookslover yes! exactly! #readadv -8:51 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian @sophiebiblio Because someone out there has probably done a variation of it and blogged about their own success/failure with it. #readadv -8:51 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @LizB You can learn more sometimes from a not as successful program #readadv -8:50 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn @LizB Come visit in March! :) #readadv -8:50 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio RT @LizB: A6 WHY didnt it work? is there a lesson in how to do things differently? ways to save time? ditto for what works for #readadv -8:50 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @booksNyarn and now I'm hungry for baked goods. the books i have but not the baked goods! #readadv -8:50 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio A6 I often start with asking for help from my PLN. My default now is to leverage THEIR insights/expertise first, then my own. #readadv -8:50 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn A6. Also reviewing the Staff Picks area for titles I am not familiar with or haven't read. #readadv -8:50 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB A6 WHY didn't it work? is there a lesson in how to do things differently? ways to save time? ditto for what works for #readadv#readadv -8:49 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB A6 it's funny I know we mock the libraryland "we tried that before and it didn't work" but sometimes that is good to know#readadv -8:49 PM Jan 17th, 2013

8:49 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @LizB @angelina41 I saw that & may try to do some of the months, especially in the genres I don't usually read.#readadv -

Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn A6. I like to bake, and I like mysteries, so working on a "Cozy Cuisine" night with food samples & booktalks. #readadv-8:49 PM

LizB A6 I really need to join that challenge #readadv -8:48 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @angelina41 are others joining you for these challenges? I love it! #readadv -8:48 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio Great idea! RT @LizB: A6 speaking of ideas, how about @angelina41s #readadv challenge for 2013http://t.co/2z9nLNMl #readadv -8:48 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather A6 I think it's helpful to show how the suggested idea would've worked in past situations #readadv -8:48 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn @LizB A6. Just thinking this over myself for the spring. I say work with your own talents and what you enjoy to start.#readadv -8:48
PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB A6 speaking of ideas, how about @angelina41's #readadvchallenge for 2013 http://t.co/9a9BQXyy #readadv -8:47 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian A6: My assistant loves to hear me say, "I saw this online. . . " #sarcasm #readadv -8:47 PM Jan 17th, 2013

VaVeros @bookslover I hadn't read any Greek in 20 years. I now follow Greek librarians & read their blogs. I'm working up to books :) #readadv -8:46 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio RT @younglibrarian: @LizB #readadv a5. places to look for new pln people, on twitter, would be hashtags of related industry conferences. ie. #dbw13 4 publishing -8:45 PM Jan 17th,
2013

LizB @boothheather http://t.co/1wr4sOeM #readadv -8:45 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB Q6: When you’re interested in implementing new #readadvprograms or ideas, how do you leverage your experience/knowledge to do so? #readadv -8:45 PM Jan 17th, 2013

boothheather Joining #readadv chat very late. Can someone tweet the link for the room? -8:44 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @VaVeros I never though to use Twitter to work on my Greek. What a great idea! #readadv -8:44 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @TKSlibrarian yeah, sort of the PLN version of "we read to know we're not alone." #readadv -8:44 PM Jan 17th, 2013

younglibrarian @LizB #readadv a5. places to look for new pln people, on twitter, would be hashtags of related industry conferences. ie. #dbw13 4 publishing -8:44 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @TKSlibrarian yeah, I think F2F, especially in education, which is so stressful -- you need space to vent. Online is more focused. #readadv -8:43 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian #readadv Although hearing a little complaining helps us realize that we all deal with similar issues. -8:43 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @booksNyarn Same here #readadv -8:43 PM Jan 17th, 2013

VaVeros A5: Apart from bookish/library/romance I also have Greek tweepts (trying to improve my language skills) & travel tweeps#readadv -8:43 PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads @booksNyarn Yes, and pop culture via ONTD and After Elton. #readadv -8:43 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio RT @TKSlibrarian: One of the best things about virtual PLN is the lack of complaining. Sometimes f2f PLNs do a lot of complaining #readadv -8:42 PM Jan 17th, 2013

helgagrace @LibrarianE13 :) #mombrarians #readadv -8:42 PM Jan 17th,
2013

sophiebiblio @TKSlibrarian that's a good point. I like to use#tlchat (and #edchat a bit, too) to find ppl who're really in my PLN proper. #readadv -8:42 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LibrarianE13 @helgagrace me too, well libs & moms, u know,#mombrarians :) #readadv -8:42 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn @bookslover SO many people I wouldn't have found on my own! #readadv -8:42 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn A5. Oh, and of course Tom & Lorenzo @tomandlorenzofor snarky fashion commentary & Project Runway bashing.#readadv -8:41 PM Jan
17th, 2013

bookslover @TKSlibrarian Same here mostly. I enjoy the mix though #readadv -8:41 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB I'll search twitter to find book reviews or articles on trends etc#readadv -8:41 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @BethReads Ranganathan had NO IDEA he was talking about wedding dresses, but he totallly was. #readadv-8:41 PM Jan 17th,
2013

helgagrace A5 I use lists to sort people out into usable groups.#readadv -8:41 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB for twitter the "search" function also helps to find topics/posts/articles etc #readadv -8:41 PM Jan 17th, 2013

librarianosnark @sophiebiblio YOU ARE SO RIGHT! #readadv8:40 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @BethReads yes! I have been nurturing this idea of doing a conf preso based on what I've learned from SYTTD. Hm. #readadv -8:40 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LizB @helgagrace me, too! I like to follow a bunch of people -- and

its funny, there are never too many "on" at one time #readadv -8:40 PM Jan 17th,
2013

JustinLibrarian @sophiebiblio Why thank you. I am very lucky to have you in my PLN as well! #readadv -8:40 PM Jan 17th, 2013

TKSlibrarian @bookslover but I don't really consider them my PLN. My PLN is mostly a smaller group of school librarians and educators. #readadv -8:40
PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover RT @stevelibrarian: A5 Also learn things I can apply professionally from following personal interests. It's all intertwined. #readadv -8:40 PM Jan 17th, 2013

BethReads @sophiebiblio I can totally see that! The right thing for the right seeker. #readadv -8:39 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @bethreads A5 the "well, I like this, but am open to that", the meddling mothers, the taste development...it's the same thing! #readadv -8:39 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @booksNyarn I do the same exact thing! #readadv -8:39 PM
Jan 17th, 2013

LizB A5 I also follow different TV/film people connected w/ the shows etc i watch, BBCAmerica, Syfy, etc #readadv -8:39 PM Jan 17th, 2013

bookslover @TKSlibrarian @LibrarianE13 Same here. Some folk I follow are celebrities & others with similar interest that I do#readadv -8:39 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio Ditto, though mostly Camden County. Patch, esp! RT @LizB: A5: I also like to follow local NJ news, both state and monmouth county #readadv -8:39 PM Jan 17th, 2013

LibrarianE13 A5: authors, publishers, teachers, to get diff perspectives. love interacting w/ authors! @sarahpekkanen#readadv -8:38 PM Jan 17th, 2013

booksNyarn A5. I have personal interests along with professional.

Honestly, I look at who those I follow are following for more to follow! :) #readadv -8:38 PM Jan 17th, 2013

sophiebiblio @BethReads A5 hah! My #1 fave outsidelibrarianship place to look is SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA. Not kidding at all. #readadv -8:38 PM Jan 17th, 2013

librarianosnark A5: education field, definitely. i also pay attention to pop culture industry - gotta keep up with trends! #readadv -8:38 PM Jan

LizB A5: I follow a lot of publishing folk (authors, editors, agents, bloggers, etc.) b/c of books #readadv -8:37 PM Jan 17th, 2013
