Becky Canovan, a reference and instruction librarian at University of Dubuque, is a fan of passive readers’ advisory. I asked if she’d talk a little about the displays she’s done recently and why she likes doing this at her academic library. RA can live in any library!
Coming into summer I was looking for colorful, relevant, and eye-catching. I usually attempt to pull together sub-collections that tend to be scattered in LC. Travel is one of those topics. I pulled travel guides, fiction, other non-fic, YA and children’s books. A simple prop or two and a variety of configurations help keep this simple space looking fresh.
