Around three weeks ago, I reported that Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel had an official record in the Library of Congress catalog, which is still viewable despite the government shutdown. Now, I am pleased to report that the book has it’s first public library record which is in the Los Angeles Public Library’s catalog. Just to add some icing to this cake, four people have placed a hold on it.

Full disclosure – I work for LAPL though I honestly did not hit up anyone in the Cataloging Department to create this record, so it was a pleasant surprise to see it pop up so soon. I am not sure if all authors are this thrilled to see their books in library catalogs, but as a librarian it is a pride inducing moment and I look forward to seeing the book show up in more institutions.
