Information and the Future: A Handbook of Sources and Strategies
The data continually being generated in the current"information explosion" offer a seemingly inexhaustible resource, which--by its very size and complexity--can present a formidable obstacle to researchers. As data sources proliferate, it is becoming clear that methods of searching are as important as access to sources. Combining the expertise of reference librarians with the knowledge of futures researchers, this new handbook offers access to a wide range of information sources and spells out methods for quickly and systematically gathering specifically targeted data.
