Hi! If you don't get VOYA (Voices of Youth Advocates) currently, you can check it out via interlibrary loan from the State Library. VOYA also has some booklists on their website<http://www.voyamagazine.com/topics/voyabooklists/>. The State Library hasn't received the August 2014 issue yet, but it looks like it's going to be a great issue about books in Spanish for young adults! Below is the info for checking out materials from the State Library.

The following new title is available for interlibrary loan from the Oregon State Library. If you would like to request this or other materials from the Oregon State Library please use your library's established interlibrary loan process (e.g. OCLC or ALA request form).  Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at library.request at state.or.us<mailto:library.request at state.or.us> or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos). Materials will be delivered via mail or Orbis Cascade Alliance Courier, and you may return them the same way. Normally a single copy is purchased and is loaned on a first-come-first-serve basis. You may be put on a hold list for several weeks. Thank you for your patience.

Most library staff are able to use their library's interlibrary loan service to borrow professional development material. However, if you do not have access to these services or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me (katie.anderson at state.or.us<mailto:katie.anderson at state.or.us>) to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.

I'll second Mark with VOYA (Voices of Youth Advocates).  If your institution will only provide one resource, VOYA is probably the best.  It's bi-monthly.  VOYA has a popularity/quality rating for recently published material (although like any publication,  sometimes there will be a lag on reviews of a certain books.  This may mean a delay in purchasing a hot title if it's your only resource).  They also feature topic specific collection development articles (great teen LGBTQ titles or humorous books for guys, for example).  They also break their fiction book reviews up into two sections, general Fiction and Science Fiction (I think anyway), though many genres reside within each.  They also have separate reviews for nonfiction.  It can help you break orders up by topic evenly.

School Library Journal, Booklist and Kirkus are all fine.
