This course emphasizes the history, philosophy, and description of
children and young adult library services. It takes a holistic look
at the role of the youth services librarian from planning and
evaluation to specific services and programs, and examines the
current and future outlook for this type of librarianship. Emphasis
is on the public library, but cooperation with appropriate services
and programs such as school media centers is also discussed.
