Guidelines for Library Services for Young Adults (Revised)

This publication, IFLA 'Guidelines for Library Services for Young Adults' provides a framework for developing services to young adults and libraries, for the international community. It provides the intellectual building block for a country, for its service through its librarians. The Guidelines contain both philosophical and practical ideas that can improve a library's response to meeting the educational, informational, cultural, and leisure needs of young adults, in ways that are developmentally appropriate. It is to be used as a document for librarians, decision-makers, policy makers, library students, and stakeholders in the development of services for young people.
