Regulating Readers: The Social Origins of the Readers' Advisor in the United States.
Luyt, Brendan
Library Quarterly, v71 n4 p443-66 Oct 2001
The readers' advisory service was a product of social forces operating in the context of early twentieth century capitalism. The work of French regulation theorists provides a framework for analyzing these forces using the concepts of regime of accumulation and mode of regulation. Libraries were connected in a society-wide project, as opposed to being in isolation from wider societal trends. (Contains 60 references.) (AEF)
