Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Written by the contributors to the blog PopGoestheLibrary, this work defines how popular culture can contribute to any library. Expanding from brief blog posts to a book, the authors explore what popular culture is and, more importantly, what it is not. Also examined are what it means to create a popular-culture collection and how to use popular culture to generate staff and public support. Real librarians and staff are represented in a Voices from the Field section in each chapter. The volume ends with four appendixes chock-full of resources and ideas for implementing the ideas presented. A comprehensive index makes this a valuable reference, while the writing style encourages reading cover to cover. Popular culture can be a powerful tool for helping libraries connect with their users, and this book is required reading. It will be updated at --Sara Marcus
