Answering the call for a standard of bibliographic control and a critical analysis of library and information science publications, this book provides a single-source guide to the current literature in the field. It features 425 in-depth, evaluative reviews of English-language library and information science monographs, reference materials, and selected periodicals published in 1997 and 1996 in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. In addition, a section covers doctoral dissertations in library and information studies (1988-1996). The book is arranged in three sections--Reviews of Books/CD-ROMs, Reviews of Periodicals, and Doctoral Dissertations in Library and Information Studies--with reviews further organized by topic. This guide also evaluates materials, identifies research trends, reports on the production and distribution of knowledge, documents intellectual activity in the field, and establishes bibliographic control over publications in library and information science.
