Recommended Reference Books for Small and Medium-Sized Libraries and Media Centers just became available for ILL from the Oregon State Library. Since materials for school libraries are identified, I figured most of those would also be appropriate for children's and YA areas in public libraries. My colleague, Ann Reed, posted about the book below.

[book1.jpg]  Hysell, Shannon Graff, ed.  Recommended Reference Books for Small and Medium-sized Libraries and Media Centers. 2013 ed.  Santa Barbara, CA: Libraries Unlimited, 2013.  011.02 Recom 2013 ed.   ISBN 978-1610693684

Featuring 550 titles chosen from the 2013 edition of the larger American Reference Books Annual, this volume caters to smaller libraries that must ensure every dollar of their often-limited budget is wisely invested. To help them do that, the editor has selected only titles that are highly reviewed, have a low price point, and will appeal to a broad audience.

The book presents high-quality, critical reviews of 2012 reference products, both print and online, suitable for small college libraries, medium-sized and small public libraries, and school libraries. Chapters are arranged in four major subdivisions: General Reference, Social Sciences, Humanities, and Science and Technology. Within each, reviews are further divided by form: bibliography, biography, handbooks and yearbooks, and so on. Each review is written by a librarian working in the field and can be trusted to be accurate and fair. Each indicates the type of library or libraries for which the work is appropriate.

Be sure to check out our Library and Information Science (LIS) blog (http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/) to discover the most recent additions to our LIS collection and search our catalog (http://oregon.gov/OSL/index.shtml) for our complete holdings. The library science collection is meant to support the whole Oregon library community. The Library Development Division welcomes your suggestions for acquisitions - see the blog for an input form or email us!

This collection is supported in whole by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Oregon State Library.
