Readers' advisory has long ago sprinted past merely suggesting books to patrons; it now encompasses many different formats and means of communication--working with patrons of all types and ages, in and outside the actual library. To help harried librarians handle increased demand, experts Jessica Moyer and Kaite Stover assemble a group of specialists who have created a one-stop resource for all kinds of readers' advisory issues. Here you will find a trove of solid guidance, including

* How to advise patrons on all kinds of media, from fiction and nonfiction to audiobooks, graphic novels and even reference materials
* How to provide services to senior citizens, teens and even readers who are incarcerated
* How to handle author visits and book groups
* How to enhance storytelling, even for adults

Covering everything from getting to know a library s materials to marketing and promoting RA, this practical handbook will help you expand services immediately without adding costs or training time.

She is active in ALA and has served on the Booklist Advisory Board, the PLA Readers Advisory Committee, the RUSA CODES Readers Advisory Committee, YALSA s Alex Awards Committee, and the Sophie Brody Medal Committee. In 2003 she was named one of Library Journal s Movers and Shakers.

From Booklist:

As readers’ advisory matures, it involves much more than the act of matching a reader with a book. It encompasses a broader range of materials and library users and also informs the way materials are reviewed, selected, promoted, and used. There are books that lay out the core principles of reader’s advisory or that address a particular genre or the needs of a particular audience. This compilation fills a gap by presenting the full range of “skills, techniques, and practices” that now make up readers’-advisory service. It is divided into five parts: “Getting to Know Your Materials”; “Reviewing and Evaluating Materials”; “Marketing, Promoting, and Sharing Materials”; “Programming”; and “Expanding Readers’ Advisory Services.” Chapters authored by a number of familiar names (among others, Sue-Ellen Beauregard on reviewing audiobooks, Heather Booth on working with teens, Sarah Statz Cords on getting to know nonfiction, Lynne Welch on creating read-alikes, and David Wright on providing storytime for adults) join chapters by editors Moyer and Stover in providing a comprehensive guide. Several of the chapters contain samples and worksheets. A valuable addition to the growing readers’-advisory shelf. --Mary Ellen Quinn
