New H.W. Wilson Fiction Catalog Available

H.W. Wilson ( announced the new 15th edition of its Fiction Catalog—now available on WilsonWeb and in print. For librarians, Fiction Catalog , 15th edition is designed to help with collection development and maintenance; selection and purchasing; readers' advisory; and general reference, with a selective list of more than 8,000 works of classic and contemporary fiction. Fiction Catalog draws on the evaluations and expertise of a panel of librarians. The best authors and their most widely read works in literary and popular fiction are listed. (All are works written in or translated into English.) Entries deliver complete bibliographic data, price, descriptive annotations, and evaluative quotations from a review when available. Fiction Catalog also features analytic entries for novellas and novels contained in composite works.

In print, the new 15th edition lists more than 8,000 titles in the main hardcover volume (2006), and more than 2,000 new titles will be listed in annual paperback supplements that subscribers will receive at no additional charge in 2007, 2008, and 2009. The WilsonWeb edition brings subscribers substantially more content, versatile searching by a wide range of parameters, and more frequent updates. Users have access to all the content of the 15th edition plus an archive from the previous edition. Recommended titles are added daily or weekly—without the wait for annual supplements. Entries link to full-text book reviews, review excerpts, and citations, plus holdings information from the library's OPAC. A WilsonWeb subscription also facilitates simultaneous searching with other WilsonWeb databases.

Libraries that subscribe to the electronic edition save 50 percent on subscriptions to the print edition. Significant savings are available with the "5-Pack" Standard Catalogs subscription on WilsonWeb: Public Library Catalog, Children's Catalog, Senior High School Library Catalog, Middle and Junior High School Library Catalog, and Fiction Catalog. Content from H.W. Wilson's Standard Catalogs powers the new Bowker's Book Analysis System for school and public libraries, providing automated holdings gap analyses.
