American Reference Books Annual 1975. Volume 6.
Wynar, Bohdan S., Ed.
The sixth volume of American Reference Books Annual (ARBA 75) covers 1974 imprints plus some 1973 reference books that were received too late for the previous volume. It reviews all reference books published or distributed in the United States in all areas of knowledge. ARBA 75 contains 1,855 reviews, and the individual reviews are markedly longer and more detailed than those of previous years. ARBA 75 also features an expanded section on libraries and library resources including general monographs as well as reference books. As in previous volumes, foreign reference books that have an exclusive distributor in the United States are reviewed, and government publications and reprints are reviewed selectively. Important reference works that appear annually are reviewed every three to four years, providing information on changes in their structure and coverage. Reviews contributed by subject specialists and those that are critical are signed. The volume is arranged by subject with a combined author-title-subject index. (PF)
