This is the fifth supplement in the classic reference series begun by Mary Huse Eastman in 1926. Ireland and Sprug analyze 262 collections published between 1978 and 1986, with some 2,000 subject headings, plus copious cross-references. Many new headings are found in this volume, including additional adult headings of folklore and mythology to accommodate and increase in the number of adult books indexed on these subjects. This supplement will be useful, therefore, to academic libraries, as well as to children's departments in public libraries and to school libraries.
