Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Integrated Advisory Service: Breaking Through the Book Boundary to Better Serve Library UserS≪/i> is designed to assist librarians in making connections between all the different media in library collections and advising patrons. By understanding genre similarities between fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, TV shows, video games, and movies, library staff will be better able to access and market the entire library collection, as well as reach out to and serve library patrons who they may not reach with traditional readers' advisory services.

Each of the book's chapters is organized around a genre (such as science fiction, women's stories, and others), with sections on integrated advisory, characters, plots, themes, and making connections across genres. Chapters are exploratory, introducing users and library staff to the key concepts of the genre and the importance of the different media. Each chapter also provides a variety of lists that will help both staff and patrons find materials based on genre interests.

Book News Annotation:

This reference offers suggestions for readers in all genres, listing the types of media available for each title--book, movie, television program, computer game, video game, graphic novel, manga, abridged and unabridged audiobooks, and podcasts. Individual chapter topics include horror, romance, popular science, street literature, and teen, with each chapter divided into sections on characters, plots, themes, and connections of the topic in other genres. Each chapter is filled with lists of title recommendations, each with a full description. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
