The Saskatoon Public Library has Recommendation for Purchase forms that
we offer to patrons. We have separate forms for Audio Visual and Print
materials. We also take on-line
materials. We also take on-line Recommendations. We look for reviews and
distributors which can be time consuming. If we decide not to purchase the
materials, we send the patron a form telling them why. If we decide to
purchase the item, then we route the form around to the branches to see if
they want to purchase a copy. This process takes a long time but the public
is appreciative. Hope this helps, Mike!
