Collection Policies?

The subject of Collection Policies came to mind last week when the Southern Baptist Convention had a proposed resolution expressing concern that recent books and movies about heaven are not biblically accurate. How does your Collection Policy deal with such media?See More

Title Recommendation: Of Windmills & War

My sister, Diane Moody, has just released her newest book. Must admit, I almost read it in one sitting which is unusual for me. Could not put it down! Great historical fiction that tells the story of a little known part of WWII. As you will see on the Amazon reviews for this book, men are interested in this book and highly recommend it. And you will see that Diane based the story on the life of our Dad,…

Thank you, Morlee. Have you considered asking the prospective member 2-3 questions about their library to try to screen out the "weirdos" as you label them? Not just numbr of books/items that anyone could through a number at, but perhaps something subtle that could be answered by a legitimate interested librarian, but would result in an obvious "I don't know what you're talking about" to others? Maybe a question about favorite author or book title. Just an idea. Thanks for your efforts. Gene

Hi Deanna!! Our state events are sponsored by the state SBC associations but the events are open to everyone and we have many denominations and church groups attending. Ridgecrest is also open to everyone. THANKS!

Hi, Morlee,

Are the many state associations holding meetings made up primarily of Southern Baptist churches?  or a mix of denominations?

How about the Ridgecrest conference?

I've been curious!  Thanks.

Morlee,

Were there any DVDs produced for the training done in Tennessee this past year?

How would we order or access them? What cataloging books would be available in hardcopy or disc for cataloging other than church items, such as medical terminologym etc.

Thanks for the welcome, Moralee.  I appologize for not responding LOOONG before now!  Life is just so full of activity and responsibility, I hardly have time to check my regular email!  So glad I "stopped by" here today.  This is a great way to keep in touch and get new ideas, etc.  Hope to get by more often.  Thanks for all your hard work on behalf of Church Librarians.

Thank you, Marlee!  for your prompt response to my complaint.  I'm well aware this abuse is not your fault.  Just checked out some of the recent bulletin board photos--some excellent ones!--Dianne Callender

Another SCAM message today, from Jenifer Hagge, who purports to be our latest member.  She sent all members an offer to find out about stocks.  Don't believe this is the purpose of our group.  I do appreciate the group when it is not abused.  Wish all members felt the same.  Dianne Callender

Dear Morlee,
I have a suggestion for the Members Page. I'm trying to find all the Church Librarians who are in Florida or located nearby. Could they also be grouped by the City & State?
Thank You!
Janet E.
