Integrated Readers Advisory in Library


When libraries held only books, readers advisory was as easy as recommending a print title. But now that they are the holders of electronic, audiovisual as well as print items, things are a bit more complicated. However, they are not impossible.

Librarians have plenty of choices when it comes to recommending titles. Because those titles are not only in print, should not stop the librarian from making choices from the variety of materials at hand. One can even have a bit of fun with it.

How about a romantic date night bundled display for Valentine's Day? Choose a romantic comedy DVD, music CD, and a book of poetry. Patrons just add chocolate!

What new year would be complete without an exercise DVD, healthy food cookbook, and workout music?

Foreign films make a nice display. Italian films with Italian food cookbooks and some Pavarotti? French films go well with some music, the soundtrack to the 2011 film Hugo is a wonderful choice. More opportunities for cookbooks here, too. Language CDs and books are another great choice.

Upcoming film releases make a great choice particularly if they are made from books. Couple the display with music CDs from bands featured in the film. Travel books from where the movie was filmed are a great choice to pique the interest of patrons.

Family reading night could consist of a variety of books: read aloud picture books for the little ones, adventure stories for the mid-grades, and a good cozy mystery for the older set.

Art exhibits in the library can be augmented by period music, documentaries about the period of art exhibited, books of local and large museums featuring art reminiscent of the exhibits. In addition, books teaching people how to do those artistic techniques can be featured.

The possibilities for integrated readers advisory are endless. Have fun and play with ideas! Once you start looking, you may be surprised by how many of your library materials are relevant to current events, upcoming film releases, even talk show topics!
