With this unique reference, information expert Ellen Metter takes the frustration out of research projects with her own mix of humor, data and savvy research techniques. From libraries, newspapers and the Internet to scholars, experts and directories, Metter shows readers how to access hundreds of viable resources for virtually every subject. To make research quick and easy, each chapter focuses on a different area, including government, current events, culture, law, business, history and more. For example, if the reader wants to find a certain rare dissertation on macroeconomics, Chapter 4, Contemporary Research, provides a list of indexes to archival locations. The chapter also outlines the various methods of obtaining a hard copy or microform of the research. As an added value, Metter includes the 'instant information' that other research guides lack, such as addresses, phone numbers and listservs.
