LIS 515 Reading List

So, as you know, Internetland, I am a candidate for a Master’s of Library and Information Studies degree from the University of Alberta. My goal for the future is to work in an academic library at a university or college because I like the research aspect of  that setting. I realize that finding my dream job right out of school is rather unlikely. So I thought, just incase I end up in a public library for a while, I would take a course more so geared toward public librarianship. One of the courses I am taking next fall is called Materials for Young Adults – LIs 515, and over the summer we have a reading list to go through and make notes on. So, all the books for this reading list will be reviewed under the catagory of LIS 515 Reading List, just incase you were wondering ;).

This is the list of books I will be reviewing this summer:
