old dino books
Kind sirs and madam, I am a rather elderly (62) children's librarian at
the smallest branch library in my town (Tacoma, Wa) and have reached the
dinosaur section of my library to weed. Will some kind person out there
please answer me (off list so as not to clutter the list with extraneous
material) the following questions:
1. Is it safe to assume that any book published after 1990 is reasonably
accurate for reports by middle and high school students?
2. Does anyone know if these books published between 1985 & 1990 are
accurate or should be out the door---
DINOSAURS ALL AROUND THE WORLD by Caroline Arnold photo's by
THE DINOSAURIA edited by David Weishampel, Peter Dodson, &
DINOSAUR DATA BOOK by David Lambert & the Diagram Book
and a series of books by Rupert Oliver Illustrated by Roger Payne
published by Rourke press of Vero Beach Fla. Sample titles are:
Protoceratops, Chasmosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Brachiosaurus, etc.
I do not want to discard any book that is still accurate no matter what
the publishing date nor do I wish to keep anything that isn't as up to
date as possible within budget limits.
Thank you everyone
