Book by Mahmoud, Shah
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
By attempting to cover too many aspects of research and writing, Mahmoud has unintentionally created a confusing model for students to follow. The text itself is repetitious and strewn with misconceptions. In the library section, for example, See and See Also definitions are reversed, Pagemaker is listed as word processing software, and Easylink is described as a "large online database." The writing style alternates between second and third person and between excessive specificity (e.g., a multipage description of the author's university's LS/2000 OPAC) and ambiguity (references to "computerized location systems"). Heavily edited and adapted to the author's campus, this handbook could have possibilities, but students who use it as a "guide" in its present form are apt to lose their way. Not recommended.
