Fiction services

Deborah Goodall, Margaret Kinnell Evans

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


It is perhaps surprising to find a chapter on fiction services in a book primarily concerned with considering the information needs of community groups. It is certainly challenging to try and shift the emphasis when looking at community information services, that is, to focus on the 'community' rather than the 'information' aspects of the service. The aim of this chapter is to illustrate that the public library fiction services can, and do, make a positive impact on the local community, particularly, but not exclusively, on those members who have special needs.
