Youth Services Librarianship:A Guide to Working with Young People in School and Public Libraries

This wiki is a collaborative project of graduate students enrolled in LIS506 Youth Services Librarianship at the University of Illinois' Graduate School of Library and Information Science during Fall 2011, Fall 2012, and Fall 2013. Additional content was provided by graduate students enrolled in LIS590CBL Cataloging for School Libraries under the direction of Professor Kathryn La Barre (Summer 2012) and in LIS516 School Library Media Center with Georgeann Burch (Spring 2013). This wiki provides students with an opportunity to think more deeply about some of the unique challenges and opportunities of working with young people in both school and public libraries. For more information about this course or the wiki, please contact the instructor, Professor Carol Tilley.
