Teen Readers' Advisory in the Age of the Smartphone

YALSA Book Finder app
YALSA's new Book Finder app and database is something I'm excited about introducing to teens and other readers of YA literature. Using either the desktop or the mobile app, which is slick and graphically pleasing, anyone can access the entirety of 4,000 titles from YALSA's awards and other lists of titles.

One major benefit is that this database is searchable and not limited to the chronological award lists that had to be accessed individually. Librarians, teens, and parents can download the free app to find new reads on either Android or iOS devices. The Book Finder is searchable by award/booklist, author, genre, or award year. Find out more about the database HERE or about the app HERE.
