Description: From Library Journal
This is not merely a guidebook to journalism books, but a comprehensive, up-to-date, annotated source on where to find answers to most questions about journalism, mostly concentrating on newspaper and broadcast news. The author, who is the chief librarian at the respected Poynter Institute for Media Studies (and an LJ book reviewer), suggests reference books (including bibliographies, encyclopedias, and dictionaries), indexes, computer databases, manuals (including handbooks and stylebooks), catalogs, and guides to microform collections. She also includes guidelines on 50 "core publications" in the field, 75 major and 100 minor journalistic societies and associations, and 100 research centers, archives, and media institutions. The annotations supply sufficient information to help a researcher decide on whether to follow through on a lead. Recommended for every media collection.

Product Description:
Journalism: A Guide to the Reference Literature is a critically annotated bibliographic guide to print and electronic sources in print and broadcast journalism. The first edition was published in 1990; the second in 1997. It has been described as one of the critical reference sources in journalism today, and it is a key bibliographic guide to the literature. Choice magazine called it a "benchmark" publication for which there are no comparable sources. The format is similar to the second edition. What makes this edition significantly different is the separation of Commercial Databases and Internet Resources. Commercial Databases includes standard fee-based resources. The new chapter on Internet sources features Web-based resources not included in the commercial databases chapter as well as portals, other online files, listservs, newsgroups, and Web logs/blogs (Web-based resources providing commentary, links and discussion about specific topics). All chapters have been revised, and there are significant revisions in Directories, Yearbooks, and Collections; Miscellaneous Sources; Core Periodicals; Societies and Associations; and Research Centers and Archives. The second edition has 789 entries. The third edition contains almost 1,000 entries. James Carey of Columbia University, who provided the foreword for the first two editions, has updated his foreword for this edition.
