Competency: Public Services Competencies

Sub-Topic: Reader’s Advisory

 

Once you know what makes a mystery a mystery or a fantasy a fantasy and why a patron may prefer one of those genres to another, it is time to move on to the next step...keeping that genre knowledge up to date. 

Yes, Harry Potter will always be classified a fantasy and Agatha Christie a mystery, but within those larger categories there are smaller subgenres and trends that evolve over time.

Join noted Readers’ Advisory Specialist and long-time Genre Study coordinator, Becky Spratford as she gives you a work out plan for staying in genre shape. She will show you not only how vital it is to stay on top of the changes within genre fiction, but also how easy and, more importantly, fun it is to stay in genre shape. Together we will rethink the entire concept of genre and how we use it to help readers find their next good read. 

Attendees will learn how to:

 

      create a genre work out plan for yourself and your staff

      stay abreast of current trends in genre fiction

      identify the most useful genre resources based on your individual needs

      organize a genre study
