Twenty-Six Cambridge University Press Books among Prestigious CHOICE List of Outstanding Academic Titles

Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, a publication of the ACRL, publishes a list of their chosen Outstanding Academic Titles every January, from the previous year. Only ten percent of approximately 7,000 eligible reviewed titles are awarded.  

Overall excellence in presentation and scholarship, importance relative to other literature in the field, distinction as a first treatment of a given subject in book or electronic form, originality or uniqueness of treatment, value to undergraduate students, and importance in building undergraduate library collections are just some of the criteria applied while awarding the Outstanding Academic Titles.

Choice magazine and Choice Reviews Online reaches nearly every undergraduate college and university library in the United States.
