Description : An alternative to the more expansive 2012 American Reference Books Annual, from which it draws its high-quality reviews, this volume is specifically designed for reference librarians working in collection development at smaller college libraries, K-12 school libraries, or public libraries. 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.
