Description: Card catalog description
Through clear explanations of nine fundamental methods of searching, Thomas Mann provides an overview of little-known but powerful strategies used by librarians and information specialists. Enlivening his advice throughout with real-world examples, Mann explains how to take advantage of controlled vocabularies, browse library shelves systematically, construct keyword searches, use published bibliographies, and even make personal contacts with knowledgeable people. Against the trendy but mistaken assumption that "everything" can be found on the Internet, Mann asserts the lasting value of physical libraries and time-tested research strategies, while acknowledging the complementary applications of computer technology. All formats including books, journals, newspapers, microforms, audiovisual materials, primary documents, bibliographic databases, and digital libraries on the World Wide Web are considered for their unique advantages, as well as for their limitations. Required reading for students, scholars, information-seeking professionals, and laypersons.
