Top Circulating Music CDs

The Yellow Books, 1887 . Fine Art. Encyclopædia Britannica ImageQuest. Web. 18 May 2016.
“Knowledge is like money: To be of value it must circulate, and in circulating it can increase in quantity and, hopefully, in value.”
― Louis L'Amour, Education of a Wandering Man  

In the library, "circulation" means a lot of things.  What's sometimes called the "library card desk" is also known as "circulation".  When we look at a book's record, we count how many times it has checked out as its "circs". The library's collection floats (items checked out at one branch and returned at another stay at the branch at which they are returned), but its items circulate.

For this month's top circulating, we're looking at music CDs! Our staff orders new music monthly, with quarterly World Music orders. Is there a CD you think the library should have? Suggest a purchase. With your valid library card, you can also stream music on our eResources Freegal and hoopla, and we also feature the eResources National Jukebox (from the Library of Congress) and Naxos Music Library (classical and six other genres). This list is the top 25 circulating music CDs system-wide. Any surprises on the list for you?
