201​6​ “Best of the Best” at ALA Annual

The “Best of the Best” program is presented annually at the ALA Annual Conference by the University Press Books Committee of public and secondary school librarians. This year’s panel occurs Sunday, June 26 in Orlando, and will feature the books listed below.

Uniaaup-logo-2_0versity presses represent an often-undiscovered gold mine of resources for school and public libraries. We at NetGalley are proud to partner with the AAUP (Association of American University Presses), which promotes the work and influence of university presses to help fulfill their common commitments to scholarship, the academy, and society.

Please join NetGalley, the AAUP, and the ALA in recognizing the many cultural contributions of university presses and librarians alike. It is our privilege to work with these book advocates.
