Open Access Graduate Research Paper


This study was based on Zena Sutherland's 1965 research of review coverage of juvenile books by School Library Journal, Book list, Bu11etin of the Center for Chi1dren's Books, and Horn Book. Sutherland's research analyzed twelve months of reviewing by the selected sources for the purpose of determining the number of titles reviewed by all four of the reviewing sources, by three of the four reviewing sources, by two of the four reviewing sources, and by only one of the four reviewing sources. The representation of nonfiction and fiction titles was also analyzed by Sutherland. This research study adopted the same objectives for analysis but analyzed only six months of reviewing. Because of the difference in time periods analyzed, comparisons were based on percentages.

Overall results of this study were:

Titles reviewed by 4 sources 27

Titles reviewed by 3 sources 132

Titles reviewed by 2 sources 455

Titles reviewed by 1 source 978
