The reference tools discussed in these two units of the instructional package (other units are: LI004051 and LI004053 through 004055) are: General Technical Encyclopedias and Engineering Handbooks. The unit concerned with encyclopedias summarizes the basic features of a good encyclopedia and gives some general procedures which are helpful in establishing familiarity with a new encyclopedia. The unit on engineering handbooks looks at two specialized sources of engineering information: (1) "Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers," and (2) "Handbook of the Engineering Sciences." The use of both of these reference tools is discussed at length. (ED 032 085 discusses this instructional package.) (Author/NH)
