[Michlib-l] ARCs

Hello:

I would closely read any copyright or disclaimers that appear on the books themselves – different publishers may have different requirements on how ARCs can be used.

I also located a couple of other sources that discuss ARCs.

Here is an interesting Blog entry on the topic:
http://yalsa.ala.org/blog/2009/09/01/but-can-i-catalog-it/

Here is how one library deals with them (that appears to be completely within the scope of  an ARC’s purpose):

Thanks!

Greetings, everyone!

Now that we're all back from ALA, many of us with large (back-breaking?) collections of Advanced Readers Copies, I'm curious how other libraries make use of those lovely freebies once they've been lugged back home.

I'm having a hard time convincing my staff that they don't belong on our shelves but I confess that the issue is a little cloudy for me, as well. Do any of you catalog your ARCs or loan them in some way?  Also, I'm very interested in the types of ARC-related programming, etc., others have done.

Please respond to me off list and I will compile the results, if requested.

Thanks so much for your input!
