Abstract: This paper reviews the various types of information services which are provided for unemployed teenagers, and the nature of teenagers awareness and expectations. The point of view of various information providers is studied, and three case studies give an up-to-date picture of the current provision in parts of Scotland. In one area, a library dedicate to teenagers was in operation, and their awareness of information was extremely high. However, in the other two areas awareness of the information was low. Findings suggested that this was mainly due to a lack of promotion of the information service, and a lack of cooperation between agencies. The surveys also point to the unemployed teenagers' wish for better access to information about job vacancies.
