- There has been a lengthy discussion on YA-YAAC about what stuff should be called in the library and in YALSA. Some folks feel that young adults shouldn't be a term for 12-18 year olds, but for 20 somethings. Some people suggested a name change for YALSA, and lots of other stuff. What do you think?
