A collection-development, readers’ advisory, and curriculum support resource for educators and librarians working with elementary students. Containing more than 45,000 titles, this resource covers fiction and nonfiction works, story collections, and picture books recommended for readers in preschool through sixth grade. Professional literature for the children's librarian is also covered.
Designed specifically for high school libraries, this database contains full text for hundreds of popular high school magazines and reference books, tens of thousands of biographies, and thousands of primary source documents. MAS Complete also provides an image collection containing more than 1.2 million photos, maps, flags, and color PDFs.
Containing full-text for more than 80 of the most popular elementary school magazines, Primary Search is designed specifically for elementary school libraries.
Featuring content from Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia, Primary Search provides students with easy-to-read encyclopedic entries written specifically for kids. All full-text articles are assigned reading level indicators (Lexiles) that provide educators with an estimate of the result’s reading difficulty and the approximate grade-level reading ability required for comprehension. Lexiles help teachers meet the needs of students with varying reading abilities and interests and allow students to read along at their own pace.
In addition, this database provides access to a collection of more than one million images of relevant photos, maps, and flags to aid kids in learning.
Use these three Wilson collection development databases to search librarian-selected titles for readers from preschool through high school. Search all three core collections at once: Children's Core Collection, Middle and Junior High Core Collection, and Senior High Core Collection.
This selective list of books recommended for young people in grades K through 12 is invaluable for collection development and maintenance, reader's advisory and curriculum support for all school libraries.

Journals and Periodicals
Although many of the journals we have in the Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go. Below is a list of journals we have in print and electronic formats. See titles for links to each journal. (Note: Print copies of journals are housed on the first floor of the Sherratt Library, organized alphabetically by title.)
Here at the Sherratt Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system (call numbers) to organize most of our items, including print books and e-books. Below is a general list of call numbers that relate to Library Media (they can help you find items on the shelf).
