Booklist Online

Booklist is a 100-year-old journal, published by the American Library Association, whose core mission is to provide public and school librarians with reviews that help them decide what to buy, and can also be used to make reading recommendations. Booklist Online is both a free Web site and a subscription database. The free site offers a generous selection of Booklist content—plus some Web-only features—and is updated daily or weekly, depending on the portion of the site. All the content on the home page can be accessed without a subscription, including any links on the homepage. The content of other main pages on the site is also free - Adult Books, Books for Youth, Media, and Reference. The subscription database contains archived reviews and features that are dynamically linked. The database contains over 100,000 reviews and thousands of features dating back to 1992. Much of the older material is searchable but not linked in the way newer content is.
