Editorial Reviews

?Unlike lists of serials designed to assist contributors in submitting manuscripts, this one attempts to aid in selection of serials for library collections in a time of shrinking library budgets. Serials published abroad in English are included, as are interdisciplinary journals (e.g., library journals) with substantial coverage of education. Journal titles are given item numbers and and are arranged under broad headings (e.g., Media and television, ' Multicultural issues, ' Reading and language arts, ' Adult and continuing education'). . . Well-organized, thoroughly indexed, and easy to read, this bibliography will be useful to any academic library seeking to improve its coverage of education serials.?-Choice
