Maintaining a longstanding reputation as a valued text, A GUIDE TO THE USE OF LIBRARIES AND INFORMATION SOURCES is known for its brevity and solid core of reference sources. It is used in a wide variety of disciplines, including Introduction to Library Science, History, Education, and Freshman Composition courses. Depending on the program, these courses are both required and elective. GUIDE provides a comprehensive treatment of libraries, with emphasis on the many kinds of library materials and on the various services libraries have to offer. An additional feature which distinguishes GUIDE from the competition is the inclusion of a complete section on the research paper, making GUIDE a valuable part of any freshman program. This edition includes updated coverage of library reference sources, as well as expanded coverage of computerized information retrieval systems and computer-related search strategies.
