Public and Secondary School Library Collection Development Resource
Published with the help and support of two divisions of the American Library Association (ALA): the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) and the Collection Development and Evaluation Section of the Reference and User Services Association (CODES/RUSA).
University presses represent an often-undiscovered gold mine of resources for school and public libraries. Many books and reference works from scholarly publishers are valued far beyond the walls of academe. They can be the building blocks of learning and growing for high-school students, general readers, independent researchers, and involved citizens. For more than 25 years, a volunteer panel of Public Library Association and AASL librarians have annually reviewed and selected 300+ titles published by Association member presses to build this valued collection development resource.
The bibliography is released in both print and online editions, distributed freely to 10,000+ librarians. Book entries include key bibliographic data, a thumbnail description, and a CODES/RUSA (public librarian reviewer) and/or AASL rating. There was a brief gap in publishing after 2017 due to programmatic transitions; a new edition for 2019/2020 is in production.

Find Books & More
All Library Books: OneSearch includes information about millions of books and ebooks, including those that Robertson Library owns or has temporary access to. Choose Books Only when you search so that you don't also see articles, videos, and other items.
Not sure how to find the book? The Ebooks vs. Print Books page has details about call numbers and full text links.
If you find information about a book in OneSearch but there's no call number, full text link, or "Find @ UPEI" link, use Interlibrary Loan to request a copy from another library.
Print Books Only: The Library catalogue includes the books in the Library Stacks, the physical reference collection, and other physical items, including Special Collections materials and physical media.
Find Books Everywhere In
- Other PEI Libraries :
- PEI Public Library Service
- Holland College
- The Other Library Catalogues page has links to individual library catalogues in Atlantic Canada and beyond.
- U.S. and Other World Libraries : Search WorldCat to search across most US libraries, many Canadian libraries, and several other included countries. Also includes in search results a large citation-only article index, a US government document index, and a conference papers/proceedings index. (Again, information about UPEI's own holdings in this database are not up to date.)
- Google Books : Search the full text of over 30 million books. Books out of copyright may be read entirely online; others will give you only a snippet or other tiny portion. If you find something that UPEI does not own, but that you would like to read, request it from Interlibrary Loan and we will try to borrow it from another library for you.
