More About This Textbook

Overview

As the growth of eBooks and database formats accelerates, selecting reference materials for school library collections has become a complicated process. Like previous editions, Guide to Reference Materials for School Library Media Centers, Sixth Edition is designed to suggest the best material in all formats, on all subjects, and at all levels—to help school librarians find the best resources.

To compile this guide, the author reviewed materials in school, public, and community college collections, and confirmed quality by examining published reviews in standard library reviewing guides. The resulting book lists reference tools for school librarians and has major sections recommending general science, humanities, and social science reference books, eBooks, and subscription databases for K-12 library collections. Materials listed come both from publishers who specialize in K-12 materials and publishers whose market is not typically school libraries.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This volume is an excellent starting point for new school librarians, as well as for those who are building a library from scratch."

School Library Journal

School Library Journal
Printed approximately 10 years after the 5th edition, when the CD-Rom was considered "the" electronic medium alternative, this volume has been updated to include web-based reference offerings as well as listings of older sources, provided that their content is still valid. All of them were still in print at the time of review. The professional review sources used by Safford to evaluate the listings, include Booklist, Library Media Connection (formerly Book Report and Library Talk), School Library Journal, and her own personal review columns, which were featured in School Library Media Activities Monthly. Arranged in the same manner as the previous edition, this title profiles resources recommended for use by school librarians for collection management, readers' advisory, teaching, general reference materials, the social sciences and humanities, and science and technology. This volume is an excellent starting point for new school librarians, as well as for those who are building a library from scratch.—Beth Green, Wappingers Junior High School, Wappingers Falls, NY
