Awards

I try to include awards information (Field 586) in the bibliographic records. A good place to track down awards is the Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature (DAWCL).
DAWCL has over 4,500 records from 57 awards across six English-speaking countries (United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, and Ireland). Click the link Explanation of Awards above to see a list of awards, their countries, and a brief explanation. Each book is indexed to some degree so users can find it using the form search or the keyword search.
