Outstanding Academic Titles of 2013 [link]
Date: 1/1/2014 12:00:00 AM
Organization: American Library Association's Choice Magazine [link]
Abstract: Every year in the January issue, in print and online, Choice publishes a list of Outstanding Academic Titles that were reviewed during the previous calendar year. This list reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by Choice and brings with it the recognition of the academic library community. The list is quite selective: it contains approximately ten percent of some 7,000 works reviewed in Choice each year. Choice editors base their selections on the reviewer's evaluation of the work, the editor's knowledge of the field, and the reviewer's record. The list was known as Outstanding Academic Books until 2000. The new name reflects an increase in reviews of electronic products and Internet sites.
