Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
The Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD) is an acquisition, research, and reference service that offers more than 1,400,000 MARC records and more than 280,000 reviews of children's books--all full text searchable from 36 review sources.
The CLCD now includes Teaching Tools--which includes lesson plans, teaching guides and the like.
Also CLCD has added a new review source--The Lion and the Unicorn from Johns Hopkins University Press.
Starting with Volume 30, Issue 3, CLCD will be adding the book reviews from this journal that critically examines children's literature. The database passed the ONE MILLION mark for inclusion of MARC records. Also available are hotlinks for more than 440,000 awards, prizes, best book list and reading list entries. When you search for and find books, you will also see what awards the books have won and what lists they have made. This information is updated and augmented on a regular basis.
The database also provides access to over 47,000 book jacket images as well as information provided by various Reading Measurement Programs such as Accelerated Reader, Degrees of Reading Power, Lexile and Reading Counts. Another useful feature is the more than 145,000 links to web pages featuring individual authors or illustrators. You will be able to search for an author or illustrator and qualify your search to only retrieve those that have web pages.
