Information Sources in Science and Technology. Library Science Text Series.
Hurt, C. D.
The intent of this book is to give the reader an insight into the possible reference sources available in the area known as science and technology. One purpose of this book is to allow the student of this literature to enter the maze of material without feeling unduly overwhelmed. The first chapter covers the history of science, specifically: astronomy; biological science and agriculture; chemistry; geoscience; mathematics; physics; technology; and medicine. Chapter two covers multidisciplinary sources of information including guides to the literature; abstracts; encyclopedias; dictionaries; handbooks; serials; directories; catalogs; dissertations; meetings; translations; copyrights; and government reports. Major areas of concern are astronomy; biology; botany and agriculture; chemistry; geosciences; mathematics; physics; zoology; general engineering; civil and construction engineering; production and processing engineering; transportation engineering; and biomedical sciences. Each area of content is broken down into guides to the literature, abstracts, encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, and directories about that area. (MVL)
