In this YALSA podcast Linda Braun talks with Erin Downey Howerton (Johnson County Library) and Joseph Wilk (Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh) about the homework needs of teens and how libraries support those needs.


The podcast was an outcome of a blog post about online homework support that Erin and Joseph both commented on. The discussion covers:

  • How Erin and Joseph’s libraries provide online and face-to-face homework support
  • Ways in which social networking tools can and can not help libraries provide homework support
  • How web-based tools, such as Book Burro, have an impact on information seeking behaviors.
