The always-dependable reviews are written by librarians with subject expertise, and both positive and negative comments are retained to enable users to select products that fit their specific needs. Content is divided into four main categories: general reference works, social sciences, humanities, and science and technology. Reviews are broken down into reference type, alphabetically arranged within subject headings.
