    Readers' advisory is a service provided by libraries to assist readers with discovering books they will enjoy. Today there is a growing commitment to readers' advisory services as libraries promote the value of leisure reading and embrace the joy of reading for pleasure.

    In this self-directed online course, students will learn to help readers who enjoy personal assistance with finding something good to read and readers who prefer to discover their next great read independently.
    Students will study the theory of appeal in order to understand what readers enjoy about books. Students will also learn about tools and resources that support their work as reader's advisors and resources important to staying current with publishing and reading trends.
