About the Author:

Virginia A. Walter holds a BA in world literature, an MLIS from the University of California, Berkeley, and a PhD in public administration from the University of Southern California. Before joining the faculty in what is now the Information Studies Department at UCLA in 1990, she had worked for more than twenty years in public libraries, most recently as children s services coordinator at Los Angeles Public Library. She retired in June 2008 with the rank of professor emerita. She is the author of two books for young people, nine monographs, and more than thirty-five articles in scholarly and professional journals.

Elaine Meyers is manager of Children's and Teen Services for the Phoenix Public Library, Burton Barr Central Library. Former project director of Public Libraries as partners in youth Development, she has worked in public library youth services for the past 25 years. She has served as adjunct faculty in the graduate library programs at the University of Arizona and UCLA. She holds her MLS from the University of Arizona.

From School Library Journal:

Young adult librarians are perhaps more unsure of what their role was, is, and what it will be than any other group of library professionals. They are often in the same boat as the patrons they serve; they are caught in a kind of twilight zone, lost between children's and adult services. Walter and Meyers have created a seminal book on librarianship to this audience. Beginning with a historical account and moving forward to the present, the authors emphasize the necessity of the YA librarian. Researching print and electronic sources, using interviews and incorporating teen insights and commentary, they have established a new "place to stand" through which Teen Librarians can move the Earth. This book is a profound and professional look at young adults as library patrons, discussing their rights and privileges. The Library Teen Bill of Rights, methods of evaluation, and the necessity of creating teen advisory panels are just a few of the critical issues acknowledged and discussed. Every librarian or potential librarian who has any contact with teens must read this book.
