Now in paperback with answer key included. The new third edition of this textbook includes questions that may be answered from electronic sources, such as the Internet, WILSONLINE, DIALOG, ORBIT, and various CD-ROMs, in addition to reference works in print formats. The work is designed to teach students in library and information science, as well as college and secondary-school students in library orientation and bibliographical instruction programs, to use reference works to locate data by providing experience with such tools.

Chapters are based on types of reference works in electronic and print formats: encyclopedias, yearbooks, sources of statistics, biographical works, bibliographies, dictionaries, handbooks, indexes to periodicals, directories, and keys to government publications. Each chapter is subdivided into three sections: the first includes interviews that have taken place in public, academic, school, and special libraries; the second lists questions that can be answered from the sources listed in the third section.

About the Author:

Thomas P. Slavens (Ph.D., University of Michigan), a faculty member at Michigan's School of Information and Library Sciences, has been President of ALISE, published scores of periodical articles and 23 books (including Number One in the U.S.A. from Scarecrow), and co-authored four books in the Sources of Information in the Humanities series.

Review:

Can definitely reduce the time-consuming work of constructing exercise problems. (Journal of Academic Librarianship)

Many of the stenographically-recorded interviews contained will ring painfully true to any experienced reference librarians. (Current Awareness Bulletin, (Uk))

The questions are well-chosen, and those of us responsible for training staff and students will find this book a useful resource to quarry. ("American Reference Books Annual")
