Computers in Libraries
This journal provides complete coverage of the news and issues in the rapidly evolving field of library information technology. I enjoyed seeing that it focuses on the applying technology in our communities, schools, and libraries. Another great aspect of this journal is that it includes discussions of how computer technology impacts our library systems and community. In addition, this journal has great articles for librarians and professionals that give great insight about how technology affects them, their work place, and patrons. Not only that, it's written by librarians!

This awesome resource is full of reviews for videos and can be a great asset to your collection. It's a great resource for public, school, academic, and special libraries. It's written by their staff as well as librarians, teachers, and film critics. It offers over 200 reviews in every issue. It alerts readers to upcoming new releases, documentaries, and other movie titles. A great part they share with the reader is where to find bargains and free videos. Many consumers have described it as essential, honest, and indispensable material.

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Fabulous resource that can assist you with answering many questions you might have about children's literature. It's great to see that it is devoted entirely to the review of current books for children. The summaries are concise and they evaluate books very critically, which in turn benefits the consumer to make the best decision on whether to purchase the book or not. I liked that each review gave you information on the book's content, reading level, strengths and weaknesses, and the quality of the format. Teachers will appreciate the suggestions on how you can use the book with your curriculum.
