Overview

Explore the rich history of public library services to children with the help of this annotated bibliography that describes 428 works published between 1876-2003. The history, planning, policy, research and standards are all covered as well as children's librarianship (education, role, and biography). Forms of literature (both electronic and print) include annual reports, bibliographies, biographies, journal articles, books, brochures, dissertations and policy documents, among others. This volume uniquely features policy statements, reports, and research studies not readily identified in any one source. This bibliography updates the coverage of print materials listed in Library Service to Children: A Guide to the Research, Planning and Policy Literature (American Library Association, 1992). The electronic sources are new, and the coverage of biographical literature and materials about the history of children's services and children's librarianship has been expanded.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
If you want to find information pertaining to children's librarianship, here is the place to begin....This is an amazingly complete resource for researchers. The compilers have done all initial work by looking for each resource in databases and catalogs, then by looking at each title to determine if it applies to and is beneficial for the topic of library service to children. Every academic library should have at least one copy of this bibliography, and every professor of librarianship or children's literature should have a desk copy.
Reference and Research Book News
In this update of the 1992 American Library Association edition by Van Orden (emeritus, U. of Washington), she and Pawelak-Kort, a library media specialist at a Seattle high school, present an annotated bibliography to facilitate the location of English-language works about public library services to children and children’s librarianship. The 428 entries on works from 1876-2003 specify the research method used. A unique feature is the inclusion of policy statements, reports, and research studies not readily identified in any one source. Appendices include methodological and source funding notes.
School Library Journal
Information about public library service to children from 1976 through 2003, including key players, is presented and annotated in this extensive bibliography. The material cited includes "policy statements, reports, and research studies not readily identified in any one source," making this title useful for readers interested in policy development, those involved in the development of training programs, people seeking information about the history of library service to children, and researchers. Appendixes include research methods used, funding sources, and type of literature in which the information appears (including graduate papers), both electronic and print. A complete index brings together authors, titles, basic subjects, and organizations. This volume updates print material that was listed in Library Service to Children: A Guide to the Research, Planning, and Policy Literature (ALA, 1992; o.p.). It will be of interest and use to professionals seeking information in a variety of formats ranging from journals to dissertations and from books to brochures.-Maria B.
