Presenter: Michael Cart
The world of young adult literature is a dramatically dynamic one that, in the last decade, has become among the most vibrantly active in all of publishing. Each publishing season brings a plethora of new titles, new forms, and new formats, many of which require new methods of evaluation. Keeping up with all of these changes and the new titles flooding the market (5,000+ per year) can be a full-time job. This webinar will help its students identify new trends and the best new titles and resources for collection development.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will be familiar with current:
- Trends informing the dynamic field of YA literature and publishing
- New YA fiction – both novels of realism and genre fiction – that are “first selections” for YA collections
- Non-fiction for both recreational and classroom use
- Graphic novels and comics
- Useful resources for collection development
This webinar will be of interest to both public and school library staff with young adult collection development responsibilities.
