520    With so much content available, the challenge for K-12 
       library media specialists, teachers, and youth services 
       librarians alike is how and where to direct students so 
       they spend time on productive research rather than aimless
       Internet searches. This "user-friendly" book will help you
       teach and support students as they learn to access, 
       evaluate and use print and electronic information 
       successfully. For library professionals, there are skill-
       based exercises and case study scenarios in each chapter. 
       These tools will sharpen your professional reference 
       skills and your insights into reference collection 
       management specifically for the school and young adult 
       library setting. For paraprofessionals, aides, and non-
       degreed staff working in children's and young adult 
       services, this book provides valuable professional 
       development support.
