This resource is as much a tribute to its editors and contributors, a cadre of champions who have made the study of this underrepresented group their lifework, as it is a testament to their unwavering respect for the young inquiring mind. Continuing the work of their earlier volume published in 2004, Mary K. Chelton and Colleen Cool offer a snapshot of the current research agenda, and provide a useful starting place for exploring the information seeking behavior of young adults.

This excellent resource, which supports information behavior and youth services courses, compiles, in one convenient volume, the work of many of the discipline's important researchers and their research projects. Five chapters focus on everyday life information seeking (ELIS), including: the everyday information behaviors of children nine to thirteen years of age; a similar study of urban teenagers fourteen to seventeen; the need for sexual health information; information seeking during "queer" youth coming-out experiences; and teen reading, book purchasing, and library-use patterns. The authors also include four chapters that address the information seeking of youth in their role as students.

These studies are a must-read for researchers in the field and for those with an interest in the information seeking behaviors of youth.

Review:

This title would be most useful in library and information science course work. (Booklist 2007-05-01)

This authoritative resource is for anyone who is interested in youth and their informational needs. (Silive.com 2007-10-02)

This book contains systematic and well-designed research studies that collectively offer an interesting mosaic of the complex nature of the relationship of young people and their information-seeking behaviors....well written, scientifically based, informative...a significant contribution... (College & Research Libraries 2007-11-01)

All those who are involved in the lives of children and teenagers such as professors, information behaviorists, teachers, librarians, researchers, computer specialists and parents will find this book revealing. Even booksellers would benefit from knowing, for example, what kind of genres teenagers are reading. Thus its appeal is to a wider audience than at first glance. It gleans the type of information that will help teachers, librarians and all those who work with children and teenagers become aware of the advancements in information retrieval. This is recommended for all school, academic and public libraries. (Collection Building)

Ten contributions from academics and practicing librarians provide an overview of current research into the information-seeking behaviors of youth. Five chapters focus on information seeking behaviors related to everyday life, while the rest deal specifically with information seeking conducted by children in their role as students. The editors (both library and information studies, Queens College, New York) also provide an introduction to the topic in which they suggest directions for future research. This collection of new articles is a continuation of the work begun in volume one of the same title, which was published in 2004. (Reference and Research Book News 2007-05-01)

Chelton & Cool's "snapshot" of research related to youth information seeking is diverse, inspiring, and, especially in its introduction, provocative. (Library & Information Science Research 2007-08-01)
