I know library professors and academic librarians are on this list- so I guess I'm 
really looking to you for advice. 

I'm giving my collection of picture book extenders to my technical college Early 
Childhood Education program. 

It's been 5 years since I worked in K-12 and I can't picture going back to that 
part of my life. In an effort to declutter my basement shelves I am giving the 
collection to the college for the Early Childhood Education department to use in 
kiddie lit classes and curriculum development classes.

The question is:

Should I put the notebooks (with odd and assorted materials arranged by author):

1. on the academic library shelves (catalog them and have the info in the OPAC-- I 
guess in the LB section - Library of Congress cataloging)
2. store them in my darkroom closet office (no kidding) and remind the ECE faculty 
the material exists
3. place them in the Early Childhood department (they also have limited storage and 
no way to catalog)

I'd really like to put them on the official library shelves and have them cataloged 
in the OPAC so folks can find them....but will it be too "tacky" to have those 
notebooks with "homemade" covers on the shelf? 

We don't have a "professional development make and take lab" for Early Childhood - 
that would be the best place for them.
