For library professionals, there are skill-based exercises and case study scenarios in each chapter. These tools will sharpen your professional reference skills and your insights into reference collection management specifically for the school and young adult library setting. For paraprofessionals, aides, and non-degreed staff working in children s and young adult services, this book provides valuable professional development support. College and graduate-level Library Science faculty will find multiple applications for this information, as both a core and supplemental course resource.

Review:

"The concept of school and public library collaboration is thoroughly explored in this excellent volume on providing reference services...An excellent source for general professional use as well as for graduate study." --School Library Journal, June 2011

"Meghan Harper provides advice on helping librarians by breaking down the major references and what age group they are appropriate for. Reference Sources and Services for Youth is a volume to be considered for entry into community and school library science shelves." --The Midwest Book Review, July 2011

"This comprehensive introduction to reference services for students (K-12) addresses both school and public librarians…Particularly valuable is the chapter in which she lays out strategies for youth with different disabilities…Information is clearly presented with many charts...This is an excellent choise for an overall introduction to reference services for youth." --VOYA, October 2011

"Clearly, Harper's work experience, both as a librarian and as a professor of library science, have positively influenced her choices in both inclusion and arrangement of material, resulting in an accessible and educational work for anyone involved in reference services to youth of any age or background." --YALS, Fall 2011

"This comprehensive guide focuses on providing developmentally appropriate reference service to both the general K-12 population and students with special needs. Detailed information on how to develop a core reference collection, integrate information literacy into reference work, evaluate online resources, and manage reference services is outline in an easy-to-read format...Both school and public librarians will find this to be a valuable resource that can be used as a training guide for self-instruction for reference in locating resources." --Library Media Connection, January/February 2012
