Description
This handbook offers guidance on readers' advisory services and collection development, two of the most important trends in library service today. Each chapter was contributed by an experienced readers' advisor, and the editor was recipient of the Public Library Association's coveted Allie Beth Martin Award for his work in stimulating public interest in reading and books.

Chapters describe how to: -- organize support groups to improve reader's services-- develop special readers' services for youth-- establish book discussion groups-- manage of genre fiction collections-- develop a popular historical fiction collection-- use the fantasy fiction genre to build usage-- refine collections and readers' services to appeal to the male library user.

Also included are selective bibliographies of significant titles and information on important authors in each popular fiction genre. Indexes provide access by subject, title, series, and author.
