Call for Papers on Youth Information Access – submission deadline: November 30, 2020

The Journal of Research on Libraries and Young Adults (JRLYA), the official research journal of YALSA, is currently accepting submissions for a special themed issue. A patron’s right to access information is a key tenet of librarianship but providing access can sometimes be difficult. Library access for teens can be a complicated matter as technology changes and evolves, and barriers – such as transportation, the so-called “digital divide,” and many others – can prevent patrons from finding what they need.JRLYA is accepting submissions for a special themed issue that addresses does viagra make your face red homework abolishing essay on television for class 1 guidelines to write an essay collage homework help follow link french revolution vs russian revolution essay viagra coronaca hampton university application essay where should your thesis be in an essay viagra peut acheter dissertation abstract ghostwriting service au see url essay for college application see url dog best friend essay mending wall essay effects of propecia on men canadian viagra reviews best offer diet pill phentermine viagra lipitor depletes coq10 words that compare and contrast in essays expressing opinion essay topics online help with homework access in libraries that serve teens. Some areas of interest in this issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

•           Digital access when physical locations are closed

•           Intersection of access and outreach

•           Equitable access

•           Identifying challenges to access and overcoming them

•           Implicit bias and access

Researchers, librarians, graduate students, and others who conduct research related to teens (ages 12 – 18) and libraries are invited to submit manuscripts. Papers describing both scholarly research (qualitative, quantitative, or theory development) as well as action research are welcome for peer review and consideration of publication. Papers that report library programs but lack an original research component will not be considered.  Papers focusing on other topics will be considered for later issues.
