Search skills of today bear little resemblance to searches through print publications. Reference service has become much more complex than in the past, and is in a constant state of flux. Learning the skill sets of a worthy reference librarian can be challenging, unending, rewarding, and-- yes, fun.

Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.

In times of tight materials budgets, steeply rising prices, and rapidly expanding information formats, library professionals will appreciate the valuable insights into acquisitions processes and management of material costs that are offered in this practical new book. Respected librarians and vendor representatives contributed to this volume--the published proceedings of a recent conference held at the University of Oklahoma. These experts examine approval plans, including a new approach for the publisher-based plan; the impact of inflation, including the increasing costs of titles in selected subject disciplines, causes for the costs, and ramifications for libraries and suppliers; and the process of materials budgeting from the collection of data to the justification of the budget. With increasing demands on librarians to find better budget management strategies and to develop more effective material acquisition processes, an environment has evolved in which librarians and book vendors are forced to examine their methods of acquiring and supplying materials to libraries. Acquisitions, Budgets, and Material Costs: Issues and Approaches provides librarians with readily applicable solutions to today’s acquisition problems.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 1 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
