The New Library Key. Third Edition.
Cook, Margaret G.
A library user's handbook for college students and teachers provides an annotated bibliography of reference works. Introductory chapters provide information about the library, the structure of the book, library catalogs, classification systems, and writing research papers. There are chapters containing annotated bibliographies of encyclopedias, dictionaires, periodicals, periodical and general indexes, bibliographies and booklists, along with general descriptions of the kinds of information to be found in each type of reference work. Subsequent chapters describe and list special reference books in the arts, geography, archeology, history, social sciences, literature, science, mythology, religion, and philosophy. There is also a chapter describing non-book and media materials available in the library. Lists of research handbooks, bibliographic manuals, indexes to theses and dissertations, specialized subject bibliographies, and books and articles about reference books are appended. (LS)
