Senior High Core Collection (H.W.Wilson)

This selective list of books recommended for young people in grades 9 through 12 is invaluable for collection development and maintenance, reader's advisory, and curriculum support in the high school library. More than 40,500 entries in the WilsonWeb online version and over 6,200 works in the print format for fiction and nonfiction works, as well as recommended CD-ROMs, offer an abundance of choices, including listings of review sources and other aids for librarians and school media specialists. Entries provide complete bibliographic data, price, subject headings, a descriptive annotation, and evaluative quotations from a review when available.

Search Hints
All Fields 'phrase' searches may find more records than a Boolean AND search. This is because phrase searches are done as Boolean OR searches, but will return records in relevance-ranked order. Truncation is not supported in searches with more than one word. Because authors are entered in the database in the form Last, First and Last F., the recommended approach is to search for Last, First OR Last, F. Do not use truncation in author searches.
