New music spotlight April 19, 2008

Does your branch pay much attention to merchandizing CDs? Many don’t – popular CDs circulate pretty well without our help. But are all segments of the library user population aware of what we have to offer? Specifically, do teens take advantage of our CD collection?

Many radio stations post their playlists online. For new alternative music, go to WTMD’s Playlist Guide and select New Release Show from the pull-down menu at the top. For hip-hop and R&B, try 92Q‘s playlist. And nobody says you can’t keep an eye on who’s playing local venues such as Ram’s Head Live!, the Recher Theater, and the 8×10. Alternatively, find that CA on your staff who lives for music, and ask him or her to pick some new CDs to spotlight.
