After a summary of background knowledge useful in searching for information, the authors cover extensively the sources available to the researcher interested in locating educational data or conducting a search of bibliographic materials. They list reference books, dictionaries, almanacs, yearbooks, subject matter summaries; and sources for statistical data, news items, and audiovisual materials and discuss various techniques for their use. The section on bibliographic searching contains a summary of bibliographic methods and provides a source list of book reviews, catalogs, pamphlet indexes, periodical articles, abstracts, serial publications, government documents, Office of Education publications, publications of educational organizations, and educational research reports. In updating this edition the authors have added a chapter covering microforms and other media associated with automated data processing. Appendixes contain a list of recent supplementary references and a sample of an Alexander Universal Bibliography card. Each chapter ends with a few exercises designed to test the reader's comprehension of the material covered. (JY)
