This page is a Master Index to all past Staff Recommendations that have appeared on the BookGuide website. All hotlinks below will take you to the monthly page that the individual recommendation originally appeared on.
Since 2002, the Bennett Martin Public Library downtown has maintained a “Staff Recommendations” display. Staff from all departments at the downtown library, and from the various branch libraries throughout Lincoln, are encouraged to submit book, audio, and video/DVD recommendations for items to be placed onto this display. Items on the display have bookmarks inserted, giving brief descriptions about the item’s appeal factors, and listing similar books, audios or videos that the reader might also enjoy.
Our “Staff Recommendation” web pages are used to highlight some of the items that have appeared on our Staff Recommendations displays in the past, including our staff members’ descriptions of the books, plus links to any “official web sites” for the books, authors or series, if they exist*. Items on both the display and on these web pages may be recent releases, or older titles that deserve another look. Hotlinks on titles or formats (audio, book-on-CD, Large Print) connect to the appropriate entry in our on-line catalog, so that you may check on the availability of the item.
For an index organized by the names of the reviewers, please visit our Staff Recommendations Indexed by Reviewer page.
