Guide to Library Research. A Basic Text for the Undergraduate. Second Edition.
Devine, Marie E.
Intended for use by undergraduate students in a required course, Bibliography 101, at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, this manual is designed to teach the fundamentals of doing research in the library. A brief preface and a glossary of useful terms are followed by an introduction to library research which discusses strategies and primary and secondary sources, and provides a checklist for research paper documentation. Individual chapters cover reference works and their use; how to locate books using bibliographies; how to locate books on library shelves using a classification system and a card catalog; how to use specialized indexes to locate parts of books, such as individual essays, short stories, plays, poems, and speeches; periodical and newspaper indexes; government publications; and how to evaluate sources. An appended bibliography lists style manuals in several categories--general, history, science and technology, engineering, social sciences, business and management, critical reviews, and music--as well as seven research guides and nine guides to English usage.
