`Allo, `Allo LM_NETters,
      I have received several useful responses concerning book awards
as selection aids. Surprisingly (or maybe not to you) I have received
no responses from HIGH SCHOOL MLS's. Responses have been from
Pre-K through 8th LMS's and one university(Australia).
     I would especially like to hear from high school MLS's (grades 9-
12) before doing a final tally.
     Thanks to all that have responded and will respond whatever
grade(s) you manage
.     Happy July 4th.
     Pam Long                    Mind how you go.

      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
