A Guide to Information Sources for Reading.
Davis, Bonnie M., Comp.
This volume is intended to serve as a guide to the literature and other sources of information related to the study and teaching of reading. Source materials cited include dictionaries, handbooks, guides, directories, bibliographies, recurring reviews, abstracting and indexing publications, journals, conference proceedings, associations, and information centers. The volume is organized into three general subject areas, each preceded by a brief introduction. The three sections are further subdivided by the type of information source. The first section, Reading Information Sources, surveys the literature and other sources which are devoted entirely to reading from various points of view. The second section, General Information Sources, is a key to those sources which are general in nature but are the foundation for beginning research in many subject areas. The third section, Related Information Sources, is broken down into three subsections: education, which includes major sources on linguistics, audiovisual media, and library science; the behavioral sciences section, which includes psychology, sociology, and mass communications; and the medical sciences section, which treats physiological aspects of the reading process. Complete bibliographic information is given for entries along with descriptive annotations for guiding the reader to appropriate sources. An index is included. (Author/AW)
