Title:Halos and pitchforks: Questions about librarians serving youth
Author(s):Kimmel, Margaret Mary
Subject(s):Children's libraries
Youth services librarians
Abstract:All occupations are worthy of study, a fact documented by many since Robert Park's classic research on the hobo, the taxi-dance-hall girl, and the professional thief. Librarianship, too, has been subjected to in-depth analysis on everything from the personality of the librarian to questions about the attributes of the profession. The subspecialty of work with young people has recently been subjected to much scrutiny, primarily because there is such a need for specialists in schools and public libraries at the entry level.
