It has been 15 years since the last versions of the Basic Library Lists
for four-year colleges and for two-year colleges. Meanwhile, your library
may have missed acquiring some of the Essential or Highly Recommended
books in these newly-revised lists. It's worth having your library or a
student worker in your department check your holdings against the
appropriate list, which also includes books noted as Recommended or just
Listed. The numbers of titles in the categories are in the rough
proportions of 1:2:4:8. The four-year list includes 3,000 volumes, the
two-year list 1,200, from 15,000 initial nominations. The books are
arranged under 25 major areas, broken into subareas. Each volume contains
an author index, plus a short list of appropriate journals and
periodicals.
