Library Journal Review

The sixth edition of this valuable resource was put together by a committee of nine librarians as a source of reference titles appropriate for any public or academic library. The new volume boasts many improvements: the inclusion of Dewey and LC numbers for every entry, expanded coverage of hobbies, sports, and music, and the elimination of children's reference books. The annotations are thorough and concise; slightly longer and more evaluative entries are included for works that are highly recommended or offer unique features. The lack of a subject index is surmounted by the arrangement of chapters by Dewey classification. Symbols to indicate those books most highly recommended or those designated as "first purchase" would be a welcome addition to future editions, as would expanded coverage of psychology reference. Academic and public librarians will find this book indispensable.√ĄJennifer Haven, Amesbury P.L., MA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
