Take the RA Talk Online
Wyatt, Neal
Library Journal, v133 n3 p32-34 Feb 2008
As a group, readers' advisory (RA) librarians are a chatty bunch when it comes to what they are reading. They share book ideas with their friends and families. The adoption of online RA conversation forms is helping to extend these opportunities even further and offers a fascinating testing ground for RA work. Librarians have found that offering RA online gives them more time to think about suggestions, allows them to collaborate better with their colleagues, and gives them space to grapple with what they need to learn in order to engage with their patrons. In this article, the author shares several ideas on how to bring RA conversations online.
