A List of Books Suited to a High-School Library. Bulletin, 1913, No. 35. Whole Number 545
United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This list of books, suited to a high-school library, was compiled by the various departments of the University High School, Chicago, to systematize in its own library the accessions from year to year. It is published with the hope that it will be of value to other schools. The list differs from others of similar character in that it is not compiled from the librarian's point of view, but from that of the departments concerned, each contributing those titles which from experience have proved themselves of greatest value. The course of study develops the need of the book. This list is based upon the present curriculum in the University High School. As that curriculum is not vitally different from the course of the majority of high schools, the list may be of general value. The greatest value of this list lies, perhaps, in the fact that it forms a systematized basis for building up a working library vital to the life of the school. To indicate the value of a book a system of stars has been used. One star indicates that the work is of unusual value; two or more emphasize its worth. An index is included. [Compiled by the University High School, Chicago, Illinois. Best copy available has been provided.]
