Popular Fiction in the Academic Library
Nancy Down (Bowling Green State University), Kathy Yoder (Bowling Green State University) Popular literature, such as the Harry Potter series and the Twilight Saga, are increasingly used in academic classes. Our presentation discusses how our Curriculum Resource Center supports the use of such materials as young adult reading and as teaching materials. Our Popular Culture Library archives the materials to document cultural history. We conclude with ideas on collaborations between our collections to promote popular literature in the academic library.
