Materials Matchmaking: Articulating Whole Library Advisory

The latest issue of Reference User Services Quarterly (vol. 50, issue 3 | Spring 2011) has a wonderful article written by Tara Bannon Williamson of the Denver Public Library and edited by Barry Trott, Adult Services Director at the Williamsburg Regional Library in VA. In the article, Williamson makes the case for “whole library advisory” or “materials matchmaking” instead of just Readers’ Advisory. I thought it was a really fantastic article and wanted to give you all a heads up in case you haven’t yet seen it. I can make copies and bring it to our next MLSRART meeting if someone wants a copy – just email me.
