Core Member Survey Results in Questions – What Booksellers Want!
When booksellers join SIBA, many of them, gratefully, answer the survey questions on the back of the paper dues invoice. The first question asks: What skills or knowledge is most needed among you and your staff?
And below is a list of resources that will hopefully assist you in many of the areas mentioned in this open-ended question. Enjoy and let me hear from you if you use a resource I have not mentioned here, and I will add it to the list. If enough people find this useful, I will make it a regularly updated page here on the website like Gifts Galore for Bookstores. Happy selling!
For ABA members, I found a ton of great resources on a variety of topics.
