Description : From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

Description : First published in 1959, "Walford's Guide to Reference Material" achieved international recognition as a leading bibliographic tool across all subject areas. "The New Walford (TNW) Volume 3: Arts, Humanities and General Reference", is the third volume of the successful new, radically different Guide, which is already receiving critical acclaim. Published in a three-volume cycle, "TNW" points you to an expertly chosen selection of key, quality resources - accessible via the web and in print - in each subject field. Compiled by subject specialists from internationally renowned organizations, Volume 3 covers broad subject groupings within the arts, humanities and general reference. "TNW" has a much simpler subject classification than its predecessor, with resources within the 12 groupings divided between about 100 distinct and generally recognizable subject fields, and then allocated to one of just 13 standard resource categories. The classification is supplemented by a detailed topic index, and each subject grouping has a short introductory essay, highlighting the distinctive features of its reference resources. Each resource is given a succinct description, leading the busy user straight to its key features. This new reference book is valuable for information professionals worldwide who need to suggest resources to people who are relatively unfamiliar with the nuances of a topic and who are asking, 'Where should I start?' The focus is on resources that are most likely to be found and used within public, government, education or business information services. It is also intended for LIS professionals responsible for developing and revising a reference collection, research workers and students.

Description : The New Walford highlights the best resources to use when undertaking a search for accurate and relevant information, saving you precious time and effort. For those looking for a selective and evaluative reference resource that really delivers on its promise, look no further. In addition to print sources, The New Walford naturally covers an extensive range of e-reference sources such as digital databanks, digital reference services, electronic journal collections, meta-search engines, networked information services, open archives, resource discovery services and websites of premier organizations in both the public and private sectors. But rather than supplying a list of all available known resources as a web search engine might, The New Walford subject specialists have carefully selected and evaluated available resources to provide a definitive list of the most appropriate and useful. With an emphasis on quality and sustainability, the subject specialists have been careful to assess the differing ways that information is framed and communicated in different subject areas. As a result the resource evaluations in each subject area are prefaced by an introductory overview of the structure of the relevant literature. This ensures that The New Walford is clear, easy-to-use and intuitive. - Publisher.

Description : Information Sources in Science and Technology: A Practical Guide to Traditional and Online Use presents a selection of traditional and online methods of using information sources in science and technology, including people, organizations, literature, hosts, and databases. This text serves as a reference book that helps the reader choose sources of information and their guides, includes a routine for finding and using information, and offers tips on searching and obtaining literature in a usable form. This book is comprised of nine chapters and begins by explaining how to choose type(s) of information source that is likely to be most helpful. The chapters that follow present guides on people, organizations, and literature as sources of information. A chapter on information services focuses on those organizations that supply information or references to information that could be helpful. These services range from answering telephone queries to supplying collections of relevant documents, and from broadcast television information to direct connection with computer databases. The next chapters discuss ways of searching the literature and computer databases, obtaining literature in a usable form, and organizing and presenting information. This book concludes by considering current awareness or keeping up-to-date with information about recent developments. This monograph is intended for librarians and information officers, especially for those working in scientific or industrial environments, practicing scientists and engineers, and students associated with these professions.
