Notable Books List | Reference & User Services Association (RUSA) The Current List (2014)The 2013 ListThe 2012 ListThe 2011 ListThe 2010 ListThe 2009 List Purpose: Since 1944, the goal of the Notable Books Council has been to make available to the nation’s readers a list of 25 very good, very readable, and at times very important fiction, nonfiction, and poetry books for the adult reader. History: The Notable Books List evolved from an activity sponsored by the Lending Round Table of the American Library Association (ALA) in 1944. Since then, the selection of a list of notable or outstanding books of the year has been carried out in a variety of ways, and under various auspices. For three years, the selection was known as Outstanding Books, and was prepared by the ALA Lending Section, with the assistance of membership votes. In 1947, the Division of Public Libraries assumed responsibility of producing the list, changing the name to Notable Books. Council Operations: The operations of the Council have undergone subtle changes during the 1990's.
