In addition, the publicly available literature of atomic and nuclear energy such as books, handbooks, encyclopedias, conference proceedings, bibliographies, abstracting services, periodicals and translations are described under the following headings: (1) atomic energy in general, (2) nuclear and high energy physics, (3) nuclear power and engineering, (4) radiation and radio-isotopes, (5) plasma physics and controlled nuclear fusion. The book is intended mainly for librarians and information officers. The technical level is that of the intelligent and well-educated general user of reference sources.
