AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This book is an absorbing, readable, well researched, authoritative title. It will resonate with anyone who is interested in YA literature – librarians, teachers, teacher librarians, parents. It is a history of young adult literature in the U.S.: the first section is organised chronologically to the end of the millennium while the larger proportion of the writing focuses on twenty-first century YA publishing and is organised into a comprehensive range of fiction genre, recreational nonfiction, digital and audio fiction and graphic novels and many crossover formats.'  (Introduction)

    'In the Journal’s first issue we published three types of papers: research, research-in-practice and information-in-practice, as well as an opinion article. In this second issue we have added to these with Research Student Project Summaries. The Editorial Board approved the inclusion of these Summaries in early April and members of the Board have begun to contact colleagues around Australia with information about the new submission type. It is great to see the six Summaries in this issue and we are hoping for many more as we promote the initiative to all library educators in Australia. The Research Summaries are designed to give research students the opportunity to disseminate their research to the LIS community and that this will lead to increased interest and engagement in the projects being carried out by new researchers. These first Summaries of projects ranging from perspectives on the use of prison libraries, academic libraries supporting research impact, public library service to people with invisible disability, googling, institutional repositories in Indonesia and the experience of information literacy by ageing Australians using mobile devices, demonstrate the fabulous array of topics that are being explored by research students.' (Gaby Haddow and Mary Anne Kennan , Editorial introduction)
