For years, library collection development programs have relied on bibliographic book information from service providers like book jobbers and integrated library service vendors. However, recent scrutiny from outside sources has revealed that these sources lack comprehensive details about children’s books.
At CLCD, our extensive database of titles, supporting content, features and search engines offer a new comprehensive resource for libraries. If you're considering or currently reviewing your library's collection, we invite you to add a new dimension to your collection development program. Let us set up a trial for your staff to use and evaluate our service. Discover the difference with CLCD!
The recent external scrutiny of school and public library collections has arisen due to book challenges and legislative involvement, focusing on the details and quality of the books. To effectively address a book challenge, quick access to comprehensive information about the book is crucial.
Many children's literature database products used in schools and public libraries are heavily edited and limited in content. Some sources are book sellers with collection limitations based on books for sale, leading to degraded critical reviews.
In contrast, CLCD's PreK-12 Children's Literature Comprehensive Database products avoid these limitations, making it the most reliable, comprehensive, broad, and deep resource for finding children's books and media information today.
Collection development and addressing book-challenges is a collaborative exercise involving multiple parties. This is usually a time-consuming process being done during meetings, and exchange of emails and lists.
CLCD is offering a new feature in its upcoming version that allows creation, addition and deletion of titles to the reading lists by multiple parties. Unlimited lists are available in each subscription.
Sharing lists with colleagues, that use CLCD, is just a click away. The feature also provide an audit log and history of changes while the list are active.
The CLCD Database offers various services for those seeking children's literature book information. Libraries using CLCD as an acquisitions tool have requested a feature to review new materials during the collection development process.
Since CLCD provides book details beyond what your book jobber offers, we are introducing a new feature that will generate a book acquisitions list in a format suitable for your jobber.
Using CLCD for the selection process will expand your collection beyond the current options.
This feature comes at no additional cost and is included in the CLCD product subscription. If this interests you, let us know how we can assist you!
