Patron-Driven Acquisition – Working Collaboratively In A Consortial Environment: An Interview With Greg Doyle, Greg Doyle, J. Cory Tucker 2016 Orbis Cascade Alliance

Patron-Driven Acquisition – Working Collaboratively In A Consortial Environment: An Interview With Greg Doyle, Greg Doyle, J. Cory Tucker

Collaborative Librarianship

Patron-driven acquisition models for electronic and print books have become extremely popular in the past two years and in most cases this service has been implemented at many individual libraries. One unique collaborative model of patron-driven acquisition was created by the Orbis Cascade Alliance through a partnership with Ebook Library (EBL) and Yankee Book Peddler (YBP). This unique project is an example of libraries, consortia, and vendors working together to develop new business models during times of financial constraint, where libraries and consortia are exploring various “just-in-time” acquisition models. Collaborative Librarianship spoke with Greg Doyle about the project at Orbis ...

Reading Materials And Reading Trends Of Youth Incarcerated In Mississippi’S State-Run Training School, Rodney M. Ashmore 2016 The University of Southern Mississippi

Reading Materials And Reading Trends Of Youth Incarcerated In Mississippi’S State-Run Training School, Rodney M. Ashmore

SLIS Connecting

While MS Code 43-21-321(5)(i) requires juvenile detention centers to make reading materials available to delinquents, it fails to define specifics about the types of reading materials to which youth are to have access. Likewise, while the Robertson and Dunaway (2006) report identified facilities that provided materials and levels of access, it fell short of providing specific information on the reading materials available in the juvenile detention centers because it was not within the scope of the report. Thus, there is no clear picture of what materials delinquents have access to or read when they are placed in a ...

Teen Tested: The State Of Ya Services In America's Public Libraries, James Pinkard

SLIS Connecting

The field of young adult services has been the recipient of much attention in library literature. However, current research on the status of young adult services is lacking, as noted by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA, 2011, Priority Area 1, para. 1). This research focuses on staffing, programming and collection development practices for young adults in selected U.S. public libraries. It will also seek to reveal whether a correlation exists between the presence of a young adult librarian and the state of a library's young adult services, as well as whether a correlation exists between the ...

In The Trenches: A Comparison Of Public Children’S Librarianship And School Librarianship, Lindsey Miller Beck

SLIS Connecting

Public children’s librarianship and school librarianship share some sweet similarities. You’ll receive many hugs, have an incredible impact on the growing literacy development of small minds, and have as many books as you can read… children’s books are the best books, of course! Some of the main differences come into play when considering required education and subsequent pay, the structure of programming and scheduling, and the responsibilities and additional duties of both.
