Where to Find what: A Handbook to Reference Service, Volume 54
Scarecrow Press, Jan 1, 2000 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 307 pages
Intended primarily as a ready reference source for librarians, this book will also be of use to the library patron in search of the right book to answer a specific question. Not intended as a buying guide, it provides a source to locate quick answers to typical questions which come to the reference desk, and is particularly suited to medium- to large-sized public and college libraries. Where to Find What will be especially helpful to the beginning librarian who has a knowledge of reference sources, but is not yet able to match those sources to the question at hand. Many titles listed are not usually considered "reference books" but are nonetheless excellent for answering specific questions. The authors have chosen over 600 subject headings as those most likely to encompass the requests received at the average reference service desk. Also included in this edition are Internet website addresses for selected publications and other useful sources of information. Brief annotations on the arrangement and features of the various sources are provided. Praise for the previous edition: "This greatly improved edition should be useful to reference librarians in small- to middle-sized libraries." LIBRARY JOURNAL
