In recent years, many excellent research projects on topics related to readers’ advisory services have been published. Yet keeping up with the latest research findings is a challenge for many readers’ advisors.

Written by RA expert Jessica Moyer with contributions from leading RA luminaries, Research-Based Readers’ Advisory approaches research from two vantage points: the Research Review provides an expert overview of new research, and the Librarian’s View, written by RA experts, discusses practical issues. Written in straightforward terms, this one-stop guidebook

  • Provides an easily accessible resource for reviewing everyday interactions with readers
  • Includes real-world examples of RA changes based on the results of research
  • Gives pointers for further research through reference lists at the end of each chapter
  • Offers extensive coverage on a wide range of topics, including bookgroups and audiovisual readers’ advisory, as well as collection development and management

    Librarians and staff doing readers’ advisory and LIS students can become better acquainted with readers’ advisory research using the guidance offered here. This book also serves as useful background for readers’ advisory training programs and continuing education in library systems.
