The Bibliotherapy Education Project: A collaborative teaching effort goes to the Web or a tale for travelers
This narrative details the evolution of a collaborative teaching project into an educational Website about Bibliotherapy, which is the process of facilitating personal development or problem resolution through books. Working with a Counselor Education colleague, the Education librarian at Oregon State University helped develop a tool to evaluate books for use in therapy. When we decided to create a database of graduate students’ book evaluations and make it available on the Web, the project began to take on a life of its own. The considerable coordination and technical challenges of this transition to the Web are described.
