Title:Marketing youth library services: A user approach
Author(s):Hippenhammer, Creighton
Subject(s):Children's libraries
Youth services librarians
Abstract:Library services to youth are in crisis. New library school graduates information managers all are refusing to enter the field in the numbers they used to and library directors often cannot fill positions they have in youth services. School librarian positions are getting harder to fill as well. Who, after all, wants to have the sole responsibility for three or four libraries when each should be supporting a full-time professional? Young adult librarians are still looked on as optional (The Ohio Library Association just held a program called "Young Adult Service, a Right, Not a Privilege"), and children's librarians are fast becoming an endangered species in some areas of the country. Can anything be done? Does anyone care?
