Synopsis: Unravel the mystery of fostering a vibrant mystery collection for your library patrons!
Whodunnit? Managing the Mystery Collection: From Creation to Consumption reveals just who is responsible—for providing high-quality library mystery collections to fans. This resource takes you through the complicated process, from creating a mystery story to getting it to the library bookshelf and your patrons—all with clear explanations and no plot twists. Authors, readers, critics, scholars, and librarians give you an interdisciplinary inside look at the production and collection of one of the most popular genres in literature, the mystery.
This unique book comprehensively explains how a mystery story journeys a surprisingly winding way to reach an avid reading public. No red herrings here though. Acquisitions and collection development resources are provided along with effective strategies that will help librarians to sift through the clues on how to bring life to their mystery collections. Examinations of various subgenres of the mystery are provided, such as romance and Native American mysteries, as well as an enlightening discussion of the links between mysteries, libraries, and interest groups.
