Summary
How should LIS envision its young adult users? Now showcasing an even more rigorous debate about the theory and practice of YA librarianship than its first edition, this "provocative presentation of diverse viewpoints by leaders in the field" (Catholic Library World) has been updated and expanded to incorporate recent advances in critical youth studies. A comprehensive, evidence-based treatment that offers LIS instructors, students, and practitioners a valuable tool for aligning YA services to more fully reflect our diverse populations of young people, this collection delves deeply into such topics asthe historical roots for current theories and practice;how intellectual freedom, storytelling, library collections, and other service topics can connect with the library's notion and vision of young adults;diverse YA identities, including critical race theory;competing perspectives on young adults' rights in libraries;envisaging YA librarianship from a teen-centered perspective;youth identities and the school library; andmoving beyond coaching to copilot with young adults.The broad range of topics and arguments in this volume invites and challenges readers to see critical theory as a means to effect true transformations in young adult services
