Index to Fairy Tales, 1987-1992, Sixth Supplement
- Publish Date: 1994-06-01
- Binding: Hardcover
- Author: Joseph W. Sprug
This new publication, the seventh in the series, includes fairy tales, folk tales, fables, myths, and legends. The major change in this edition is that each entry (author, title, or subject) gives the exact source; no longer is the location found only under the title entry. The descriptive part of an entry (formerly limited to the title as printed) is often made more informative by the title listing being extended, reworded, or even replaced. There are 310 collections included, 85% of them published from 1980 through 1991. All index entries for stories in collections suitable to children (preschool through middle school) are marked with an asterisk (*). Books were selected by referral to reviews and/or evidence of use in public libraries. The List of Titles Indexed includes full bibliographic citation, the review(s) consulted, the book's reading level, and the indexing level. The 310 titles can be classified: all levels, including children (25%); junior/senior high school (44%); adult public library or college (24%); graduate (7%). The book aims at being qualitatively comprehensive for children's collections.
