LINC-List members share ideas for staying current .

I've been on vacation, but LINC-List members remain active.
Here are two items shared on the list recently to help church librarians stay up-to-date with new publications.

 Library Journal hosts Inspired Reading: New Titles in Christian Fiction webcast

From apocalyptic adventures to intricate Amish relationships, Christian fiction is so much more than devotion. Whether you are looking for some good clean romance or exciting protagonists guided by the Spirit, this webcast is for you. Discover the latest offerings from David C. Cooke, Kregel Publications, and WaterBrook Multnomah and pick up some inspired reading this fall!

SPONSORED David C. Cook Publishing, Kregel Publications, WaterBrook Multnomah and Library Journal
EVENT TIME AND DATE: Tuesday, August 20, 2013, 3:00-4:00 PM ET/12:00 – 1:00 PM PT

Use Vendor's Pre-Order list to see what's upcoming
A church librarian writes:
Some of you may already know this, but I also use ChristianBook.com to keep a running list of new book and media titles.
Example - go to site & click on Fiction and then click on Pre-order . You will usually find 7-9 pages of titles with their upcoming publication dates extending into 2014.  But be careful, as sometimes the dates change, so I usually update my list once a month.
Our patrons who love series always want to know when the next book is coming out, so I keep my list on the bulletin board next to the door so they can see for themselves!

Thanks to LINC-List members Ellen Bosman at New Mexico State University Library and Sherri D at Highland Baptist Church for these tips
