  3. Why Collection Development? • It’s easy to let collection development become a lower priority. • It’s even easier to get overwhelmed by the sheer volume!

  4. But . . . • Our collections should reflect the communities we serve. • Engaging and popular collections can • boost our statistics • change our demographics • re-shape the way the public perceives us. • “You have such cool stuff!!”

  5. Publishers/Imprints • Specialty imprints and smaller publishers often have exciting, interesting, library-appropriate material • Their smaller focus lets them really hit a targeted demographic comprehensively. • Worth looking for/into. • Often have special offers and services for libraries.

  6. Harlequin Teen / Kimani Tru • Teen: Special focus on teen paranormal romance, often with authors from their adult lines. • Harlequin also publishes Kimani Tru, a must have line for working with urban teens. (“street lit lite”)

  7. Tor Teen/Starscape • Tor Teen: fantasy, sci-fi (and horror!) for teens. • Starscape: fantasy and sci-fi for middle grade readers. • Tor/Seven Seas: manga imprint.
