And just like that your entire 523 section goes out of date. Earlier this week, we finally decided that the New York books that didn’t mention September 11th were officially Too Old. How long will it take before Pluto is no longer a planet in our collections? I’m sure not pulling them today, when I have nothing to replace it, but I think I’ll keep an eye out to see how fast they come out with new planet books.
This is probably a disappointing blow to series nonfiction publishers–they would have much preferred to lengthen their series to 12, not cut it to 8!
