Unsuitable Job for a Librarian? Pleasure Reading in Academic Libraries
M. Kulig, Coordinator of Access Services, Plymouth State University,
academic librarians are ambivalent about encouraging college and

plenty of time for the book. Librarians interested in reader's
advisories, book discussion groups and popular culture material
in academic libraries should attend.
