Do you find yourself recommending the same book, or few books, over and over when a library user asks for suggestions? When approached by someone who wants to hear about good books in a genre you don’t know or appreciate, do you go looking for a staff member who does? Register for Readers Advisory Fundamentals and instructor Francisca Goldsmith will introduce you to:
- Readers’ advisory interview techniques
- Appeal factors in fiction and nonfiction
- Recognizing coworkers and community members as collaborators in readers advisory
- Measuring user satisfaction in readers advisory services
Fee: $75 for those in the California library community and Infopeople Partners, $150 for all others.
