  • Description

No one is more qualified than Van Orden to provide guidelines for the selection of books in the elementary school library media center collection, and this book is certain to increase the awareness of both new and veteran librarians to the many factors that should be considered in making a professional decision. Comprehensive in scope, chapters cover not only fiction and picture books (with discussion abetted by four-color plates) but also reference sources, geographic sources, government documents, handbooks, and more. "Buyer Beware" sections will help prevent inadvertent purchases of materials that do not meet established standards. This is the source for anyone interested in learning about a particular aspect of selection, from recommended criteria for a specific genre to information on jobbers or prices.
