    • Angela Martinez SLIS.5405.001 Fall 2012 Subject Collection: Bilingual Biography BooksThe subject for the following book collection is on Bilingual Biography books that have text inboth Spanish and English. Books found for this collection were biographies on famous artists,authors, leaders, painters, poets as well as biography books on children who have migrated to theUnited States from other Latin American countries.As a bilingual certified elementary teacher, I am an advocate for bilingual students. The audiencethat will benefit from the following subject collection books is for bilingual elementary students.The purpose of finding bilingual biography books is to give bilingual elementary students theopportunity to use these books for research purposes.I began my search by browsing my mentors books shelves in her library. She had many fictiontitles that were in both Spanish and English but only three titles were relevant to my search.Therefore, my next step was to use my mentors school library catalog to find any non-fictiontitles that may have been checked out. At the same time, I went ahead and used the otherelementary school library catalogs through the Garland Independent School District website. Idecided to go through each catalog because my mentor told me each book available in anyschool library of this particular school district must have two authentic reviews beforepurchasing. This pointed me in the right direction and I went through forty-seven individualcatalogs one at a time in hopes of finding non-fiction Bilingual Biography books. I found a goodnumber of books this way and it also provided authentic reviews. At times it was discouragingwhen some of the schools had zero to three bilingual biography books available for students.This amazed me because many of the schools in this district have a high population of Hispanicstudents. I feel that the some particular schools are not servicing bilingual students as well asthey could be. However, I understand there could be budget funding issues at work.After the option of going through the Garland ISD elementary library catalogs, I decided to usethe Children’s Literature Collection in order to verify titles, ISBN, prices, and reviews. I alsoused this tool at the end of my search for extra titles regarding bilingual biography books. Isearched the term “Bilingual Biography Books” and scanned through a list of books that wouldfit into my subject collection.At the end of my research I began to use EBSCO HOST in order to find authentic reviews forany book lacking reviews from the Garland Independent School District library catalog. WithEBSCO HOST, I used the all the available databases such as - Academic Search Complete,GreenFile, eBook collection, ERIC, fuente academica, Library Information Science &Technology Abstracts, MAS Ultra-School Edition, Essay and General Literature Index (H.W.Wilson), Newspaper Source, Primary Search, Professional Development Collection, TeacherReference Center, Texas Reference Center, TOPICsearch, Book Review Digest Plus (H.W.Wilson).
