Synopsis

Focusing on new reference sources published since 2008 and reference titles that have retained their relevance, this new edition brings O Gorman's complete and authoritative guide to the best reference sources for small and medium-sized academic and public libraries fully up to date. About 40 percent of the content is new to this edition. Containing sources selected and annotated by a team of public and academic librarians, the works included have been chosen for value and expertise in specific subject areas.

Equally useful for both library patrons and staff, this resource* Covers more than a dozen key subject areas, including General Reference; Philosophy, Religion, and Ethics; Psychology and Psychiatry; Social Sciences and Sociology; Business and Careers; Political Science and Law; Education; Words and Languages; Science and Technology; History; and Performing Arts * Encompasses database products, CD-ROMs, websites, and other electronic resources in addition to print materials * Includes thorough annotations for each source, with information on author/editor, publisher, cost, format, Dewey and LC classification numbers, and more Library patrons will find this an invaluable resource for current everyday topics. Librarians will appreciate it as both a reference and collection development tool, knowing it's backed by ALA's long tradition of excellence in reference selection.
