Three Perspectives of the Winners! Awards LIst

Winning any one of the book awards marks the beginning of a book’s unique award history as its title soon begins to appear on recommended reading lists and frequently becomes the recipient of more book awards...up to as many as 39 awards won to date by our current top Winner! - The Hunger Games.

There is a story to be told when viewing the accumulated awards history of a book.  When a book has won awards from both award types, the result is a broader view of the book's story...one that reflects the choice of both young readers from tots to teens and the choice of professionals and experts. Start with the Winners! aims to tell that story from three perspectives.  Each Winners! BrowsePLUS list provides three choices:  Both Award Types Perspective is the initial view.  You can modify this view to one of the other two perspectives:  the Institution Awards Perspective will produce the list of titles each of which has won at least one Institution Award;  the Young Readers' Choice Awards Perspective will produce a list of titles each of which has won at least one Young Readers' Choice Award.  Whichever perspective you view, each title will link to its Winners! BookviewPLUS...the title's cumulative award history from its first award to the current year. 

The following describes each perspective and its symbol(s).

 

1.  Both Award Types Perspectives

Both Awards Type Perspective:  When you open a Winners! BrowsePLUS list, you will view this perspective.   It is an integrated list that includes all titles that have won award(s) from both award types or from either the Institution Awards and/or the Young Readers' Choice Awards.  The symbols as shown here reflect the award types:  Blue for Institution Awards and Green for Young Readers Choice Awards.  This perspective will include all titles with either a blue symbol, a green symbol, or both the blue and green symbols.
