Here is the definitive practical guide to sexuality materials in libraries and an annotated bibliography of nearly 600 recommended titles for school and public libraries. Cornog and Perper have gone to great lengths to gather a wide variety of viewpoints, including Christian and conservative, and to seek out interesting and valuable materials from large and small publishers and organizations. The authors provide detailed guidance for selecting and processing sexuality materials, including vertical files, audiovisuals, and periodicals, for doing reference on sexuality and behavior, homosexuality and gender issues, life cycle issues, sex and society, and sexual problems; a full range of topics and viewpoints that libraries should collect; discussions of cataloging, programming, vandalism, and censorship; a review of the history of libraries and sexuality materials; and titles for young people with grade level appropriateness.

Editorial Reviews

"Still mindful of educating librarians on the need for sexuality collections, [Cornog and Perper] begin their book by discussing the role of the library in supporting community sex education programs. The authors also furnish practical information on organizing and accessing the diverse materials available in various subject areas and genres. They address censorship issues, giving advice on how to deal with complaints and challenges....[T]his guide to sexuality materials is an indispensable resource for building collections in this complex and sensitive subject area."-Library Journal
