This resource is as much a tribute to its editors and contributors, a cadre of champions who have made the study of this underrepresented group their lifework, as it is a testament to their unwavering respect for the young inquiring mind. Continuing the work of their earlier volume published in 2004, Mary K. Chelton and Colleen Cool begin this book with a historical overview of the literature on children's use and understanding of electronic information systems dating back to when these retrieval mechanisms were in their infancy. Chapters then provide a snapshot of the current research agenda, everyday life information seeking (ELIS), and the information seeking of youth in their role as students.

This is recommended for all school, academic and public libraries.

Five chapters focus on information seeking behaviors related to everyday life, while the rest deal specifically with information seeking conducted by children in their role as students. The editors (both library and information studies, Queens College, New York) also provide an introduction to the topic in which they suggest directions for future research. This collection of new articles is a continuation of the work begun in volume one of the same title, which was published in 2004. Reference and Research Book News 20070501 Chelton & Cool's "snapshot" of research related to youth information seeking is diverse, inspiring, and, especially in its introduction, provocative.
