About this product
- DescriptionThe authors assert that the library plays a vital role in the life of a reader from early childhood to adulthood, and provides a cogent case for making reading a priority in the library. It also offers powerful evidence supporting the importance of libraries' fiction and other pleasure-reading collections, and readers' advisory services.
- Author BiographyCatherine Sheldrick Ross, professor, faculty of information and media studies, The University of Western Ontario, teaches a course in readers' advisory, and is involved in ongoing research on reading for pleasure. Lynne (E.F.) McKechnie, associate professor at the School of Library and Information Studies, University of Western Ontario, is conducting a longitudinal study of the role of the public library in the lives of 30 children. Paulette M. Rothbauer, assistant professor, University of Toronto, has done extensive research on adolescent readers and the role of pleasure-reading in the discovery of identity. She is the winner of the Eugene Garfield Dissertation Competition.
