Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual (ARBA)
This book is a unique and comprehensive tool for collection development and an important reference for curriculum materials....This book is a must-have for any library supporting an education program. It would be an equally useful addition to school media center collections.
Orana
The value of this book lies in the impressive focus on the minutiae of classification to enable very specific access, and each suggestion is supported by detailed justifications, criticisms and general features. Binding, strengthening and shelving options also receive this detailed treatment, with full discussions of all the ramifications of each.
Library Media Connection
This book is a guide to preparing a curriculum-materials collection, with a primary focus on a college level collection to support pre-service and student teachers....this will be very helpful to media specialists interested in adding to and organizing a professional collection.

...well organized, clearly written, and will prove useful not only to library professionals, but also to individuals with curriculum development and library and information science students....extremely informative and I must state that this volume will become a valuable tool for me when it comes to my collection development activities....The second edition of Acquiring and Organizing Curriculum Materials continues to be an invaluable means of addressing this situation.
