    I’m still struggling with my community choice. I’ve decided I want to research teens, but it feels like such a huge topic to cover. I’ve found there is solid research on the info behavior of teens surrounding health (and sex) and around research habits/skills amongst other things. However @michael, when you recommended the book, It’s Complicated, I ran across yet another more narrow focus that I would be really interested in, but am not sure is the right way to think about this: that is teens who’ve experienced forms of prejudice or oppression (i.e. racism, misogyny, homophobia). Does this sound viable?

    • @jdemonte I think this will work because you can still draw from all the LIS research related to information needs and use by teens. If you can find some research related to the experiences of your specific community, that rounds out the picture.
