Bartley Business Bestsellers are summering at Falvey Memorial Library. During fall and spring semesters the collection resides in the Business Librarians Office in 1005, Bartley Hall. But this summer they’re on the Library’s main floor, shelved above our popular-reading books.
The Bartley Business Bestsellers is a small browsing collection of books of interest to the business community. Titles chosen for the collection don’t necessarily fit the profile we use for buying scholarly business books. Popular books that fit this mold include: The Fred Factor, an inspirational book about extraordinary service, and Delivering Happiness, a biography of the founder of Zappos, the widely successful online shoe store.
We select books for the collection based on rankings in the Bloomberg Business Week and the New York Times. Of course, purchases are also made at the recommendation of students and faculty. Engaging articles in the popular press such as a recent interview of the authors of This Time is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly also trigger purchases.
