[Poll #1544227]

Sarah Connor



Poll will be open until Tuesday, March 30. Have fun!

West Shore alumni, I hate you. (Ok, that's untrue.) But just LOOK at this!

SUNLINK's library collection data for West Shore's library collection versus Merritt Island's.

Now really. That hurts my heart. [ profile] iammeinuk, I seem to recall your mom complaining about/disliking the current West Shore librarian, but at least he or she knows how to spend their allocated dollars. Hmmph.

*blinkblink* MI, whyyoo buyin' such old stuff? Although, in their defense (!), it's a much older school. West Shore had to make their library when it started in 1998, so I imagine it bought all new stuff then.

Also, I'm not sure if my mom disliked any of the librarians in recent years... the divine Mrs. Thomasson was at the helm for most of my years there (after a rather stern woman left) and I don't really know the new ones. So you have a better memory than me it this department!

Also, ALSO, this is just further proof that you would have fit right in at West Shore. We could have carpooled! Such fun. :D But you're already friends with a bunch of West Shore people already, so it's just like you went there but didn't have to do any of the schoolwork. Honorary West Shore student! ;D

Heh. Yeah, no senior project for moi.

A lot of collection development is deselection, too...I think MI's current collection indicates that maybe a lot of older books just haven't been weeded out. As you point out, the age of the schools is also a big factor. However, I will never NEVER understand why so many schools keep outdated nonfiction books around. It's a real problem. PLUS you'd think that Brevard's schools would be all over current science and math texts, know...NASA and all.

I shouldn't really bitch, though. MI is still a good school, and Brevard overall is one of the state's best school districts.

(I'm just bitter that I didn't go to West Shore and bask in the academic awesomeness. :D)
