We have very short reviews at my library's website, we call it Beyond the
Blockbusters, its not current or box office super hits, but the 'other'
movies. Its fun, its a lot of extra work, and I don't really think anyone
looks at it!

I like the idea of librarians' reviews rather than the typical resources.
Library's and bookstores have done this sort of thing for many years,
librarian's picks, or employees favorites. I think the public enjoys
these.

But still, how many patrons really use our websites for things other than
searching our catalog or databases? After all, they've got Google.
