We asked, you answered, and as usual we got a lot of great suggestions from our readers. Thank you! Crowdsourcing helps to distinguish ours from other, similar gift guides, and we are pleased to keep up our tradition.
We received a few whimsical gift ideas including a requests for a time machine which would help with (among other things) the ability to chip away at a backlog, to avoid or revisit poor acquisition or accessioning moments, and the opportunity to ask record creators questions that would help with description. Of course a owners manual would be the perfect companion stocking stuffer!
On the more practical side, why not prepare to start the new year with a Levenger Circa note-taking/organizing system? These come in different styles, are expandable, and can be customized to fit your needs. (Another reader notes that there is a generic version available through Office Depot.)
