Library Survey: State of the Field

In order to situate the UW Tacoma Library book club within the parameters of what is happening professionally on a national level, we conducted a web scan of extant academic book clubs in the United States. The “state of the field” is important in so much as it helps us determine whether our work is unique or not, or whether we are acting as part of a larger, emergent trend.

What we found: fiction-based book clubs that are sponsored or run by academic libraries in the United States seem to be limited in number.

Below we present the details on limitations, methodology, and results.
