The study seeks to investigate whether this material is provided and factors affecting provision, including the attitudes and opinions of librarians involved in children’s and young people’s stock procurement.

“Je n’y avais jamais vraiment pensé” : L’attitude des bibliothécaires face à la mise à disposition de documents de fiction liés aux LGBT pour les enfants et les jeunes dans les bibliothèques de lecture publique en Angleterre

Cette communication scientifique présente l’avancée de recherches doctorales plus larges dans la mise à disposition de livres de fiction associées aux LGBT pour les enfants et les jeunes dans les bibliothèques de lecture publique en Angleterre. L’étude cherche à savoir si les documents sont fournis et quels sont les facteurs qui affectent la fourniture, s’il y en a, notamment des attitudes et des opinions des bibliothécaires impliqués dans l’acquisition de fonds jeunesse ou jeunes adultes.
