Overview

This is a collection development tool for librarians who need information on Latino periodicals suitable for public, school and academic libraries. Titles—described and evaluated by specialists—include general interest and popular magazines, newspapers, fotonovelas, and newsletters that will appeal to Spanish-speaking, bilingual, and English-speaking library patrons, as well as the more specialized journals considered appropriate for the larger public and academic libraries. Greatly expanding the "Latin America, Latino (U.S.), Spain and Portugal" section of Katz and Katz's Magazines for Libraries, the book covers such areas of interest as business and professional, current events, parenting, literature and culture, politics and social issues, Latin America, sports, and physical fitness. Entries are arranged by subject or type of publication and include annual subscription prices. Title and topic indexes are provided; an appendix gives addresses for vendors and distributors.

an important descriptive list and selection guide
School Library Journal
Covering 300 Spanish- and English-language publications, this annotated list will be extremely useful for beefing up Latino-periodical shelves. It is organized by type of magazine (general interest, parenting, focus on teens, etc.), includes other types of periodicals (fotonovelas, newspapers, etc.), and is indexed by topic and title. The book covers titles ranging from professional journals and fashion magazines to comic books and computer magazines. There are chapters on acquisition strategies and collection development and a note on the value of newsletters. If you have the readers, this resource will steer you toward the publications you need.Herman Sutter, Saint Pius X High School, Houston, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
