  Reader's Advisory

      Reader's advisory is a fundamental library service which involves suggesting titles to a reader through direct or indirect means. Reader's advisory is based on a non-judgmental assessment of the personnel preferences of the reader through a series of questions, called a reader's advisory conversation. The assessment focuses on reader likes and dislikes with regard to a number of factors, including subject, reading level, genre, writing style, the level of characterization, plot elements, storyline, pace, tone, frame, and setting. The hoped-for outcome of this interview is the identification of three or more appropriate suggestions of authors or title to be read by the library users.

     The goal of reader's advisory is to suggest titles based on a reader's individual interests and tastes.
