Since title selection is such an important factor in the success of the HCPL Digital Media Catalog, I thought it would be good to talk about the factors I use in determining whether or not to purchase a title.
Each Monday I look at every title that was added to our vendor for digital titles catalog within the previous 7 days. Most of the time there are thousands of new titles to look through. I then pick out the ones I am interested in and add them to my monthly orders.
If there are any title suggestions I have not looked at, I look through them as well. When it is time to place the order, I go through my cart and start taking out titles in order to get the final cart to within the budgeted amount I can spend that month.
