For collection development, readers’ advisory, curriculum support, and selection and purchasing, the Graphic Novels Core Collection addresses the growing popularity of this literary form. It highlights approximately 2,000 recommended titles with descriptive and evaluative annotations (including review excerpts and awards the title has won), plus cover art. Standards for rating material by age appropriateness are strictly applied, plus all titles are searchable by author, title, subject, genre, and grade level.
Entries link to additional review excerpts from Wilson’s Book Review Digest Plus database. A very powerful database, particularly when searched simultaneously with other Wilson Core Collections and other databases like Readers’ Guide.
