For Sex Education, See Librarian: A Guide to Issues and Resources

Synopsis

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.
