0 Reviews

Designed to assist librarians with collection development, this work identifies, describes, and evaluates more than 800 significant bibliographies of children's and young adult materials. Emphasis is on print and nonprint works published from 1986 through 1996, with some earlier but still useful publications. Special attention is given to such electronic media as CD-ROMs and the Internet. The book is arranged by broad subjects with essential and highly recommended titles noted. Annotations indicate scope of a work, purpose, contents, suitability, special features, and general usefulness. A separate section indicates sources that are particularly useful in building professional collections for parents and educators. Author, title, and subject indexes help users locate specific information. This work updates Guides to Library Collection Development by the same authors (Libraries Unlimited, 1994). Its deep and comprehensive coverage makes it invaluable to school and public libraries.
