Collection Development Practices / Contacts

Book Ordering Accounts 
    Username: BCDSlibrary ; password: 1234library

Amazon Prime (+ our own cataloging -- Sandy knows how to do this) *we regularly do this to get books in quick, especially replacements for books already cataloged (then all you need to do is add a holding record to a pre-existing bibliographic record)

Junior Library Guild (yearly subscription -- I renew in May)
23+ new titles a month for 12 months a year; you can pick your categories 
*you can decide to reorder this or not; I've found it super useful for collection development and the selections are based off of preview of School Library Journal reviews before they are released--so you get a jump on those books
