LIS Youth-Oriented Education: An International Perspective
Metadata[+] Show full item record
While there has been considerable study of LIS youth services (i.e. youth-oriented) faculty and some study of curriculum, few studies have focused on the curriculum actively given to students. Further, many studies of youth services curriculum have focused on one element and have not studied the array of youth services courses available. This paper looks at the provision of youth services education in five English-speaking countries: the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Youth services courses, or youth-oriented courses, are defined as those courses dealing with children’s or young adult literature, library services to youth, and school librarianship.
