I want to do a better job of promoting/advertising new books next year. One way I thought of doing that is to purchase a 12" digital frame. For each title, I would make a jpeg Power Point slide with an image of the book cover and a blurb about the book, then upload those to the frame. It will be on display at the circ desk, with a running slide show of what is new in the library.
There are infinite variations on the idea---the blurb could be student generated quotations for book reviews; you can add pictures of students and library events, display images of student art, etc.
Ideally, I'd like to do this on a larger monitor, but that's for my second year, I think. For the first year, while I figure out school dynamics, this seems like a good start.
