Special Interest Page Pathfinders Young adult readings 100 list ... Cyber library Young adult literature is often thought of as a great abyss between the wonderfully exciting and engaging materials for children and those for adultsjust as young adults are often ignored in planning library facilities and services. There is, however, a wealth of fiction created especially for teens that deals with the possibilities and problems of contemporary life as experienced by this age group. These contemporary problem novels reflect the troubled times in which young readers are coming of age, but young people also need to laugh at themselves and at their world and to escape that world in flights of fancy. With greater freedom in both content and form, young adult literature is moving into a closer connection with adult literature, and fluent readers in this age group may read primarily adult books. Societal changes and the mass media have, in some ways, pushed young people to an earlier maturity, or at least a facade of maturity. What might once have been thought appropriate for a fourteen-year-old is now appropriate for a considerably younger reader. Often, however, what is perceived as knowledge or maturity is only at a surface level, and young readers need a great deal of time for the distancing and reflection possible through literature. Nicole St. John wrote about teenagers as "inexperienced adults," and literature provides a safe haven to accrue experience.

"He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven"
Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams.
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

    Teaching Literature for Young Adults
    If you were asked to describe adolescents, words and phrases that might come to mind include "unsettled," "emotional," "volatile," "growing physically," "sexually aware," and even "developing cognitively." This variety of descriptors underscores the transitional and unpredictable nature of those being described. They are maturing, growing, thinking individuals who are somewhere between childhood and adulthood, but who are not necessarily making the same transitions at the same time. Their reading levels and tastes differ accordingly, making it impossible to lump them into one group: they must be considered as individuals. Teaching adolescents requires an awareness both of their individual development and of their age group characteristics. As Bushman and Haas tell us in their adolescent-focused text: If we agree that the research and theory about young adulthood is accurate and that it gives us important information on what happens to young adults during preadolescence and adolescence, then it is important that teachers know about young adult literature and how it meets the interests and needs of these young people who are confronting a range of experiences in their physical, intellectual, moral, and reading development. (2001, 2)

    TITLE: The Children's Literature Web Guide ACCESS: The Children's Literature Web Guide maintains a collection of Internet resources for young readers and others interested in children's literature. The site was established in 1994, and is managed by David K. Brown, Director, Doucette Library of Teaching Resources, University of Calgary. In the Introduction section, Brown hopes that users of this site will be "tempted away from the Internet, and back to the books themselves!" The site is organized into four main categories: Features, Discussion Boards, Quick Reference, and More Links. Under Features, users can browse What's New to keep up-to-date on newly-added links and updates to the entire site. The Web-Traveller's Toolkit annotates selected children's literature web sites and is a good starting point for further exploration. The Discussion Boards provide a forum for comments on recent award-winning books, readers seeking answers to various children's literary topics, and postings on conferences and programs. Quick Reference offers information on awards given to children's literature, and links to children's best seller's lists, as well as "top picks" lists from professional organizations and publications. Also part of Quick Reference is the Doucette Index, which "provides access to books and websites that contain useful teaching suggestions related to books for children and young adults, and the creators of those books." While the books indexed are those held by the Doucette Library of Teaching Resources, this index identifies specific resources that may be available in other libraries. More Links contains good collections of links to authors and illustrators, resources for parents and teachers, and lists of publishers and booksellers.

    Author Research
    Scope and Purpose
    The Purpose of this project is to identify American Indian Authors who are represented in the American Indian Children's and Young Adult Literature Collection of the University of Washington Libraries. The research conducted will be available to be used for studies associated with the collection. This project follows the continued development of the collection. The scope of this project entailed identifying which authors, of the over 1,300 represented in the American Indian Children's and Young Adult Literature Collection, are affiliated with an American Indian tribe, what those tribal affiliations are, resources used in this identification and verification, if possible, by the American Indian tribes identified. To date, 66 American Indian authors of children's materials (approximately 4% of the total collection) in this collection have been identified and are listed below . A bibliography of all sources used follows as well as a Microsoft Excel and PDF file containing all titles in the collection with known author information included and sources cited for each author when available. This research and documentation was completed by Samantha Harris as a Directed Fieldwork project towards the Masters of Library and Information Science, University of Washington Information School, Winter, 2004.
