      Hello LM_NETters,
      I am interested in knowing if anyone out there automatically
purchases the winning books of certain book awards each year?
      If so, which book awards do you count on each year?
      Whether you count one or ten+ please answer. I really want to
know how book awards figure into your collection development.

     Please tell me what type of library you purchase for
(private/public school, college, university, private/public library,
other), which book award(s) you use, and if you can spare the time,
why you use them.

    Thanks ahead,
                  Pam Long
