I’m excited to announce that The Readers’ Advisory Handbook is now out!
Over a year ago my friend, and awesome librarian, Kaite Mediatore Stover asked if I would be interested in writing a chapter for her readers’ advisory book. She wanted me to address the online aspects of RA. I’m more of a blogger than an article or book writer but Kaite convinced me it was worth it.
I am honored and humbled to be included with the contributors to this book. Check it out!
