Methods of Library Research: A Manual for Bibliography 301.
Fink, Deborah; Hogan, Eddy
Developed as a local supplement and instructional guide and syllabus for students enrolled in Bibliography-301: Methods of Library Research, this learners' manual focuses on such library skills as the formulation of appropriate search strategies, the selection and evaluation of reference tools and sources, the selection of needed materials from these sources, and techniques for recording and organizing that information. It is designed to enable the student to make judicious choices from the multiplicity of available sources, including the understanding of these sources, and to prepare him/her to make consistent and logical presentations of bibliographical search results. The course itself is structured as a broad general search, i.e., it is organized into small units in 47 chapters by types of reference sources generally used in the social sciences and the humanities. Included are a detailed course syllabus of reading assignments, class projects and examinations, and the requirements for successful completion of the course. (RAA)
