As a young adult librarian I would be responsible for putting programs together for the community's youth. Not all of those programs are going to relate to reading. For that reason I wold like to explore a question that can relate to future programs to be run that would engage the young adult community.
Question: I want to get young adults interested in yoga as a means of relaxation and exercise that can be fun at the same time. Any articles on how to do this?
My facets are going to be: yoga, young adult, exercise, and fun.
Young Adult: Youth, Adolescent, Teenager
Fun: Fulfillment, Enjoyment, enjoyable, enrichment, recreation
Now, I'm going to take my brainstorming to the WorldCat Database:
WorldCat's suggested thesaurus terms:
Yoga: yogis, chakras, Hinduism
Young Adult: Youth, young men, young women
Exercise: Physical Fitness, exercises
Fun: Recreation, Leisure, Amusements
The additional databases that I chose were PapersFirst, Medline, and WorldCat
Ss1: (yoga OR yogis OR chakras)AND (young adult* OR youth OR Young Men OR Young Women) AND (recreation or Leisure)(All in Subject Field)
Ss2: (yoga OR yogis OR chakras) AND (young adult* OR youth OR Young Men OR Young Women)(All in Subject Field)
9 results from Medline, and 25 from WorldCat
Finally, I've gotten some great articles!!
