There's a lot of science and psychology in the retail merchandising world that can benefit your library.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn the difference between creating displays and doing merchandising
  • Understand how the magic of merchandising can increase library usage and circulation
  • Realize what turns people off and keeps them from entering your building
  • View photos of great (and not-so-great) merchandising from libraries around the world
