The Need for Information about Current Trends in Adolescent Development and Culture in LIS Classes For Young Adult/Teen/Tween Librarians


LIS classes on tweens/teens needs to include information on adolescent development and adolescent culture to help librarians understand the age group with whom they will be working. LIS programs that include information about stages of adolescent development as well as instruction about materials for tweens and teens create effective teen librarians. Librarians who understand the psychological development of adolescents understand the value of providing materials that help overcome the challenges tweens/teens face in today’s world.
