Question:

How can collection development for young adults in libraries be improved?

Inactive

Answer:

Collection development for the young adult (YA) is an interesting topic because there is much debate about what exactly a young adult is and also concerning how materials should be selected for this age range. Collection development methods are generally in place at public libraries, however, patron input and opinion can help develop more relevant and usable collections. Keeping track of YA patrons’ reading preferences so that we can execute proper collection development, including purchasing, replacement, and weeding when and where we need to, will allow us to better curate items and materials so that they will mesh with YA interests. Many libraries rely on books, websites, and recommendations from entities such as the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) or lists of award-winning books to help determine their material selection. These resources all are missing one common denominator. The voices and opinions of the YA readers themselves on what belongs in their collection are often missing.

Answer:

Good mothers can appear, but the protagonist must lose the good mother in order for the storyline to advance. Jane encounters several mother figures, some bad, some simply adequate, and others that are good which she loses in some way or another. As Anolik suggests, there are two parallels which are that "the good mother is detrimental to narrative advancement, a suitably evil mother can be quite useful in promoting the deviant Gothic plot" (28) in agreement with Jane's tale of motherless woe. Just when Jane is starting to get accustomed to having a stable mother figure, she is propelled onward to the next scene wherein she is tested and found wanting yet again. MLA: Anolik, Ruth Bienstock. “The Missing Mother: The Meanings of Maternal Absence in the Gothic Mode.” Modern Language Studies, vol. 33, no. 1/2, Modern Language Studies, 2003, pp. 25–43, https://doi.org/10.2307/3195306.

Question:

How do the actions of men in "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman impact the female protagonist?

Answer:

“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman uses symbolism, imagery, and personification to craft a compelling tale of the oppression and psychological struggle faced by many women in the 1800’s. Men in this story act infinitely superior to the female protagonist by taking away her ability to make decisions for herself, which is typical of this period in time. The decisions that the men in this woman’s life make for her lead to the worsening of her condition and a dramatic change in her character.
