Subject Information Resources: A Guide to Information Resources in Selected Subject Areas of the Humanities, the Social Sciences, and Pure and Applied Sciences.
Schmidt, Janine, Ed.
Intended for use in courses in information resources at Kuring-gai College of Advanced Education, this guide approaches information resources by subject, building on previous information resources courses which concentrated on format. Resources for selected disciplines within the broad subject areas of the humanities, the social sciences, and pure and applied sciences are examined. The disciplines covered--literature, fine arts, law, history, education, chemistry, biological sciences, medicine, and engineering--were selected because they illustrate both different information use patterns and a variety of different types of information resources. The segment for each discipline examines briefly the nature of the subject and the way in which information is generated and communicated in that subject, in order to provide a background and setting for the identification, evaluation, and use of its information resources. Study questions and exercises are included for each section. The guide concentrates on Australian information resources, but also includes material produced in other countries that is relevant to the Australian situation. (Author/THC)
