Book News
Intended for librarians, library staff doing readers' advisory, and LIS students, this book explores research on readers' advisory services both from the perspective of a review of new research and the librarian's view, which involves practical issues. Comprehensive and broad-ranging chapter topics include an introductory section on the state of readers' advisory services followed by thematic chapters looking at adult readers, nonfiction readers and nonfiction advisory, audiovisual advisory, children and young adult readers and readers' advisory, book groups, romance and genre readers, the readers' advisory interview, tools for advisors, cataloguing and classification, and collection development and management. Each chapter is divided into two sections: first, the review which explores the research in an area of readers' advisory services, and second, a librarian's view, written by a practicing librarian and readers' advisor, discussing the practical aspects of the topic.
