The Joseph Regenstein library at the University of Chicago has a terrific guide to contemporary fiction, including a What's New page, which lists the winners and pools for all the major literary fiction awards. Also lists major online literary review sources and best-seller lists. It's a seriously value-added library research guide, and one I'd love to riff off here at the UO, if I could just find the time to put it together...

That, and there's a good article on the National Union Catalog (Mansell) in the most recent American Libraries. I have a bad feeling I'm that young librarian she's talking about in the first few paragraphs, the one who gives you a blank stare when you say, "Try Mansell for that citation."

No longer!
