A historian's guide to computing
As computers become ever more essential in study in research, scholars and students need clear advice on how best to use them. A Historians' Guide to Computing is the one place to find that advice. Designed especially for computer non-literate readers, this handy guide covers all you need to know about computers and research: databases and information management, numbers and measurement, statistics, graphical and tabular display, document preparation, and textual analysis. From e-mail to on-line catalogs, Greenstein uses real-life examples to show how to avoid pitfalls and solve problems. Not tied to any specific software, the Guide will help users harness computers efficiently, productively, and cost-effectively for projects of any size or complexity.
