Booklist Selection Policy Revised 1999 Booklist operates under policies established by the Publishing Committee of the American Library Association. Its primary purpose is to provide a guide to current library materials in many formats appropriate for use in public libraries and school library media centers. The needs of small and medium-sized libraries receive special consideration in all selection decisions. All materials reviewed in the Adult Books, Books for Youth, and Media sections are recommended for purchase by libraries and media centers.

Entries that are excluded are federal and other governmental publications, subscription books, dissertations (unless published), and journals and pamphlets under 49 pages. Pamphlets are included if we feel that the subject matter is current and topical or important enough to be of interest to the public.

Users can search this free resource by award, list name, year, author, genre and more, as well as print customizable lists. This new resource will replace the individual award and list web pages currently on YALSA’s site that are not searchable and that are organized only by year.

Among these are book reviews, “best of” and recommended title lists, and annotated bibliographies. · Book Reviews Even though only a small fraction of books published are actually reviewed, the book review is one of the most important selection tools. The statewide database MasterFile Premier (WVInfoDepot) is an excellent source for finding full text book reviews. nothingintherulebook, 45 länkar till bl.a. klassiker i fulltext In an increasingly digital world, literature is evolving. Sales of e-readers continue to rise, yet the cost of digital books and texts has not necessarily decreased to the extent to which many initially predicted.

While we of course advocate supporting your local independent book store – and independent publishing houses – and would urge you to purchase copies of your books where you can afford to, below you can find a collection of 45 websites where you can download tens of thousands of books, plays and texts for free.
