One of the bookshelf choices in my shop class for my students is plywood sides or frame and panel sides. The plan is the same except for building the frame and panel. Dado into the rails and make the stiles wide enough, I use 2 1/2" so that you can put adjustable shelf pin holes. I still use a face frame either way, this hides the shelf pins and the small gap. This also keeps the plans more consistent and creates the opportunity for pocket hole joinery in my class. I just glue and nail or glue and clamp the face frame on. One thing I mention to the students is to adjust the width of the stile on the front so that when the face frame is attached, the stiles look the same width. The face frame makes it alot easier to attach doors also.

PM me and I can send you a copy of the plan I use for a 48t, 32w, 12d bookshelf.
