Teenagers Reading

research for my PhD thesis

Library Review article

with 2 comments

Last year I wrote a literature review about teenagers in libraries for Library Review. It was published in the January 2008 issue. I was waiting impatiently to receive a copy so I could put it in the Curtin Institutional Repository. At the moment it’s only available online if your library has a subscription to Library Review. If you don’t have that luxury contact me and I’ll email you a copy. (Don’t go to the Library Review site and pay £13 for it, soon it will be online for all at espace@Curtin)


The animal on the espace@Curtin logo is a numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus). They are an endangered species and are Western Australia’s mammal emblem. Numbats are smaller than a cat and eat termites. They are one of only two marsupials in Australia that are active during the day, because that’s when their dinner goes out and about.

  2. Hi Clare, I would love a copy of your article. You will be interested I am sure to know that we also have a PD day here at the State Library on this topic. Tom Palmer is out from the UK to be with us on April 10 (Reading CHampions Project cooridnator and advocate of Boys and Reading). We are also launching out Youth Wiki that outlines a strategy for engaging yound people in Libraries. Mylee Joseph and I have been working with Public Librarians on this over the past 12 months or so. You may be interested to join us if you can and perhaps stay on to join the AUSLIB conference on April 11,12 on Reader Development.
