Abstract To gain a better understanding of library services for the youth and to narrow the gap between Chinese and overseas studies, this paper focuses on the most important and relevant research conducted in Mainland China. This paper demonstrates that these research projects have not received sufficient attention or support from government departments and parent organizations. In addition, China's scientific publishing mechanisms and academic quality are still far away from satisfactory at present. The classification and subject of current research has been relatively general and superficial, despite the expanding number of studies on library services for minors. The research produced so far has only scratched the surface. The relevant Chinese research in the LIS field has reflected only a limited perspective, according to comparative research conducted in Mainland China. Although the situation has been problematic, the studies examined in this paper and the commentaries still have shed light on the current development of library services for youths and their future prospects.
