Library Research.
Wright, Nancy Kirkpatrick
This workbook, designed for a Library Research course at Yavapai College, provides 15 lessons in advanced library reference skills. Each lesson provides explanatory text and reinforcement exercises. After Lesson I introduces specialized dictionaries and encyclopedias (e.g., for foreign languages, medicine, music, economics, social sciences, and art), Lesson II explains special subject sources, such as business periodicals and general science indexes. Lesson III focuses on indexes in literature and the humanities, and Lesson IV examines the use of other literary sources. Sources for statistical information for the nation, Arizona, and municipalities are reviewed in Lesson V, while Lesson VI shows students how to find business and financial information, using examples of investments and insurance. Lessons VII and VIII explain how to find biographical and genealogical information. Lesson IX introduces students to computerized databases, and Lesson X shows how to locate government documents. Lesson XI describes two basic legal reference tools, and Lesson XII covers sources of information on United States law. Lesson XIII discusses bibliographic and footnote formats. Lesson XIV assigns a final bibliography to be compiled by the students in lieu of a course examination, while the final section contains the course evaluation form. (KL)
