Review:

"A resource with plenty of information complete with a web-based companion, The College Student's Research Companion is a strongly-recommended resource for starting college freshmen or for library science collections." --The Midwest Book Review, February 2011

"This valuable book, including an index and visuals, will assist any student who is starting a research project, struggling through a research assignment, or putting the final touches on a paper. Written so that a novice can understand, the materials are comprehensive enough to suit even the graduate student or advanced scholar performing research. The exercises make this equally valuable as a reference book and as a textbook..." --ARBA Online

"With its highly detailed table of contents, readers will find this a handy desk reference for a quick dip in a moment of need. The readable tone promises tattered corners rather than dormroom dust. Not to be missed is the book's companion website, which provides links to the sites referred to throughout. Up-to-date information is evident and the publisher's commitment to refreshing this title frequently....make it a source worth getting familiar with. Clearly written with the college student in mind, other audiences can make excellent use of this title--including high school students, inquisitive adults, teaching librarians, and library science students." --VOYA, October 2011
