Are Your Readers’ Advisory Techniques Stale?

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.

This Infopeople course runs July 10 to August 6, 2012. For a complete course description and to register go to
