Other Award Sites
Lots of sites are providing lists of award-winning books. Here's a list of some I've found. Many of these sites include lists of literary prizes for adults.
indicates an Internet resource that in my opinion is particularly valuable.
- BookWire Index to Book Awards
- A large number of links to various award lists.
- Selected Literary Prize Winners
- Compiled by Jack Siler. Mostly adult awards for fiction.
- AwardWeb: Collections of Literary Award Information
- So far, the emphasis of this page is on Science Fiction Awards, but last time I checked, the Newbery Award was being added.
- Children's Literature Awards
- From the Children's Literature: Electronic Resources gopher at New Mexico State University Library.
- Chapter One of selected Newbery Medal and Honor Books.
- This site doesn't provide a complete list of awards, but does give you the chance to sample some of the recent Newbery Medal and Honor books. This is also a good site for information on the criteria and procedures for awarding the Newbery Medal.
- Newbery and Caldecott Winners, 1985-1994
- This appears to have been done as a Library Science project, and it doesn't look like it is being updated, but for the years covered it provides scanned book-jackets, summaries of the winning books, and some biographical information. A nice exploration of the potential of the Web.
